Rare Breed sale Carlisle 20th September
« on: September 14, 2014, 08:20:42 pm »
Anyone else going ? We are going to pop through just to have a look as there is a few things we have spotted that we want to know what they sell for  ::)
I really will have to be on my best behaviour because after seeing them today if they go cheap enough I could be tempted  :innocent:

Yes, we are going.  I plan to buy a shetland tup (lamb), but am a bit worried about how few there are in the catalogue. I also have a Kerry Hill tup to pick up on the way home, and will try to sit on my hands when they are seling the KH females!

Oh no, why did you have to draw my attention to Carlisle Catalogue.... now I am sitting here looking at pedigrees and OH saying "No way are you taking the trailer/van to Carlisle...!

At least the catalogue is somewhat clearer!

Sokel - no male purchased yet?

Oh good!

I have now been writing down a few of the Shetland sheep details, need to check pedigrees ... after all it is always easy to "hide" a sheep in the flock... :innocent:

Won't even look at the goats - but for anyone looking for some GG's - the Muircock girls for sale should be good quality animals!

Lol I am not going to look at sheep, too easily tempted.   
Have to agree about the GGs though I have seen all of the Muircock girls today and some are extra nice.  We actually couldn't resist another girl so there  will be one less at the sale  :innocent:

I will be there!!  Taking my Gotland ram lamb - and he will then be going on due to the kindness of various people on here, to his new home in Aberdeenshire.  Worrying that I will be bringing an empty pick up back, but I will hopefully resist filling it for the return journey!!!

Would be nice to meet those of you going.....

I can't be there, sadly, prior engagement, but just to let any spinners know that members and friends of Eden Valley Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers will be Spinning in Public (on Spinning in Public Day) in Penrith Library and would love to have other spinners / spindlers / fibrey folk join them, even if only for half an hour.

 :excited: :excited:  I'll check the catalogue; one of our friends usually has some Shetlands in.  I'll find *someone*!

Cheeky question : How many have you got for me?  I have a number of people interested in trying black Cheviot ;)


Edited to say, yes, our friend Alma Forster is there, she has Shetlands in.  207-210, 281-283.  Either she or her son Harry would take the fleeces for me, I'm sure.   Failing that, friends with Ryelands - the Wrights - are also there.

I have about 15, I think!  If you'd been there, I was just going to say have a rootle about in the wool sheet in the back of our truck and see what you wanted, but if any of your friends have space to get them to you, I can send them all, but obviously you'd then be stuck with them.  Two of them are greyish from older sheep, I can take those out if you want, they are on the top.  I'm afraid there is a bit of VM in there too!

I think pigs are always best bought from the breeder directly, as they don't do stress very well...
