And i remember trade not being sa flash when a pen of 25 lambs would come in and GT the auctioneer would say 'pounds for numbers' 😂
Hope we never hear that phrase again !
Pounds for numbers! Hell I’ve not heard that for ages!! GT! Grandad reckons he’s one of the best auctioneers he’s ever dealt with. Could extract the last bid out of anybody!
As said above He says it was an education at the old AM sale. 2 pens of 10 then nothing under 25’s. Once you got onto runners GT would start shouting “let the next lot in! I’ve customers here too take them by the hundred!” He says is a close run thing between Maurice and Gordon which of them would push you further! 😁
