If registered, the price would depend on the pedigree, the breeder, etc.  If not registered, then maybe £50 ?  You get what you pay for.

I was just thinking the same JM  :thumbsup:

That gives you a good estimate of what you could be paying,  but dont forget it can all depend on demand and availability on the day if your off to a sale.

Great stuff Scarlet D. - maybe I will be corrected but at sales I think it's usually £'s per life so if there are 2 ewes in the ring it will be per head
