Selling at this price was a daughter of a £11,500 Hundith out of a ewe by the old Star Green. A full sister to the champion winner here at the 2010 event and the female champion at the Hawes sale in October 2011, she sold carrying triplets to the D15 Smearsett, to Crow Hall Farms, Hexham.
The Smearsett flock also had a good trade for a couple of ewe hoggs, with the first, by the B15 Smearsett, selling for 3000gns, while the other, by the B13 Smearsett, reached 2800gns. Both were bought by Alan Barnes, Cowden, Great Harwood, Blackburn, Lancs.
