Scotsheep Wed 1st June

Come and visit us at NSA Scotsheep 2016 at Blythbank, West Linton, Peebles EH46 7BD. We will have on display some fantastic examples of what the Border Leicester can do when crossed with various breeds of sheep. David and Ian Walker of Alticane, Pinwherry, Ayrshire are kindly supplying a Halfbred (Cheviot X Border) ewe with Texel cross lambs and a Greyface (Blackie X Border) ewe with Texel cross lambs. Then we have a Halfbred ewe with Suffolk cross lambs (kindly supplied by Neil Howie, Lyham, Northumberland). And finally, a cracking example of what the Border can do when crossed with a hill breed - a Herdwick ewe with a pair of Border cross lambs kindly supplied by Jenifer Brown, Millmoor, Lanark. Come along a see if you can guess the weight of the lambs - you're in for a real surprise!
