Are they the Cheviot mules from the day I saw you? They’ve grown out into belting hoggs 👌🏻👌🏻
Some of them will be, the Tex xs are home bred, you probably saw me buy the Chev Mules, they weren’t over big on the day and not big enough to tup but they have grown out their skins. I’ll be keeping them, Suffolks and some of the Tex xs will be sold.

The ones I was running you on (unintentionally I will add) were small but very well made lambs. Tupping would definitely have ruined them but they look too have done brilliant. Make really smart shearlings come October 👌🏻👌🏻

No offence taken , their were plenty of others queuing up to bid against me. In such circumstances just have to do your own thing and if that’s good enough then so be it. Purchased smaller lambs than usual but pleased with them.

I wouldnt be too bothered if some of them feckers went bang to be honest. Constant stream past me into Egger. First load past at 3am tonning it.In fact they ton it everywhere. Got sandwiched inbetween two of them from Brampton to Longtown one day.Fully laden,they were touching 70mph on the straight bits.
Do you mean into Eggersons (sp) plant near Flimby? If so I used to drive the top road through Aspatria quite often, I would count the timber lorries from Flimby to Carlisle on a trip - usually 20 to 30
Passed me heading to Flimby. Some crazy amount of timber goes there.
