For sale or swap - Scottish Blackface tup (Scottish Borders)
« on: October 07, 2016, 07:12:54 pm »
For sale or swap The Penn my 3 year old Scottish Blackface tup. He is coming to his own so I am in need of a replacement but The Penn is too young to just send to a fat sale. Some of his offspring are the blackie lambs I have advertised on here.

He is on the heptavac p vaccination system. He has been wormed and will be getting a fluke drench on Tuesday.

Price £150 ono.

Would swap for another Blackie, a wensleydale or a Leicester of any age.

Will get a photo of him and upload it.

For any more information please email shankendfarming@gmail.com

Thanks :-)

A photo of The Penn taken in January this year...apparently I have no other ones of him except of him with a bucket stuck on his head!!!
I will get a current photo of him over the next few days.

Hi, do you still have him? our BF Tup needs replacing or moving on, too. Might get a picture up tomorrow. Bought him two years ago at Castle Douglas Sale and had loads of twins of him.

Hi
Thanks for your reply. Yes I still have The Penn. Ive just moved him and my other tups back home from their summer grazing. He got a fluke drench yesterday.
A photo of your boy would be fab. If email is easier, send the photo to shankendfarming@gmail.com

What farm was your tup bought from?
The Penn, bought through Lanark, came from Penchrise.

Thanks :-)

I actually don't know where he is originally from, my collegue Peter got him off the market two years back.
He also plans to go to CD on Monday again, so I am afraid we have to give The Penn a miss this time, sorry about that. Good luck still,  :sheep:

Thanks for letting me know. Hopefully someone else would like to swap tups, or buy The Penn and I will perhaps get one at Lanark tup sale.

Hope you guys find something nice at Castle Douglas :-)

The Penn is still looking for a new home either as a sale or as a swap...

I don't put my tups out until the 5th of December, (May lambing!), so if you have a tup that you want to use before then and are looking for another boy for second time over or even for next year... ... ...

Thanks :-)
