A gimmer by Sportsmans Bulletproof proved unstoppable when she led the prices at the fifth joint production sale from the Loosebeare and Whitehart Texel flocks at Worcester on Saturday, August 7.
Sale leader at 4000gns was from the Quick family’s Loosebeare flock, a gimmer out of a dam by the homebred Loosbeare Voomer, which was interbreed champion at Okehampton Show as a gimmer. This one sold to Monnow Marquees, Monmouth.
Second best at 3100gns was from Nicky and Jim Hartwright’s Whitehart consignment. She is by Teiglum Cosmic and is another out of a Voomer-sired dam. Buying her were the Dorrell family, Shrawley, Worcestershire, for their Stonegrove flock.
Next best then at 2600gns was again from the Hartwrights. Another by Cosmic and this time out of a dam by the homebred Whitehart Yeoman, she was taken by Will Braund, Holsworthy, Devon.
Then making 2300gns was one from the Quick family. This Sportsmans Bulletproof daughter is out of a dam by Douganhill Whisky Mac and sold to T Anderson, Banchory, Kincardinshire.
A 2000gns call followed that for one from the Whitehart pen, with this gimmer being by Cosmic and out of a dam by Millar’s Abu Dhabi. She heads to Alnwick, Northumberland, with J Guiry.
Following on at 1800gns was a twin-born Mortimer Bang On daughter from the Hartwrights. She’s out of a Loosebeare Yahoo daughter and found a new home with West Mains Farm, Gleneagles, Perthshire.
At the same money was another from Loosebeare. She’s by Strawfrank Activator and out of a Mossknowe United daughter. This one joined the journey back to Monmouth with Monnow Marquees.
