I'm not, to soft for my place, but who's going and what's on the shopping list, supposed to be all outside no big tents this year. Should be a good sale, cabbage feed Suffolks anyone.
Yes that dealer from Aberdeen, RD always has afew with the kelso number on them at Stirling in afew weeks time, getn afew £ more than he payed from them, he's a character.I don’t think I’m going. I often think I’m missing a trick when I see tups with different numbers on there backs passed out at Kelso appearing at later sales and sold.
People keep buying them so who can blame the sellers.The tweed will run yellow with Bloom if it rains. And won’t most of the texels die of heatstroke/ hypothermia/ exposure anyway, as most of them won’t have seen the outside of a shed in months. Too busy munching cabbages and tup mix !
Too many of this type of sheep at Kelso. To my memory we went every year for 45 years but stopped 5 year ago as we could not keep them alive.Those big cabbage munchers that havnt been out side for more than an hour a day for the last few month will looka picture if its a nice dreich borders day with no roof and dry straw.
Probably risk a look, whether I buy out we'll av ta see, and reading on here will it survive .
Any excuse not ta part wi some readies.I've got 200 ewe lambs needing worked with tomorrow and Friday to keep my out of trouble!
