Yep they were dispersed at the draft ewe sale at Lairg. The good thing for Dennis was they got a hell of a trade Which is reward for a lifetimes work! Pity the wrong people get the cheque!
I hope he had 1 hell of a shepherds pack! So where did his son go from suisgill?
I better go a drive down the Strath before its never the same again!

As far as I can gather he’s working self employed for a couple of fowk and has a bit of ground on his own which I bet has some bloody well bred cheviots on it! I think him and his father got the chance to buy some sheep off Suisgill and Torrish before they left But I could be wrong! I would mate it angers and upsets me to think about what’s happening!😡😞

He is in the process of registering a flock, he had a couple of tups at Lairg that weren’t registered yet, I think the name might be East Lodge if memory serves.

I still can’t quite work out the theory behind changing them why change from Cheviot when you have the Suisgill name and that standard of sheep generally averages over £150 a ewe lamb in August, cast ewes are near the same, gimmers £200 and tups average over £1500! Have to be one hell of a blackie flock to top that.....
If they are averaging such high prices for stock why would they start using Aberfield?From what ive seen from that company's various breeds of tups they most certainly arent the future!!

Because those at the helm are clueless and have been ill advised would be my guess.
