Sheep from Scotland

My Dad was selling sheep at Fadmoor on Wednesday. Shearlings he had bought the previous year up in Scotland. On Thursday he went back up to the sales in Scotland to buy this years' gimmer[female] lambs which we will keep for a year and hopefully
sell ready for breeding next year. Olivers Transport bring the sheep back and I was up early to count them into a field at the farm the following morning. Thousands of sheep are bought and sold at these sales and even if you don't want to make a purchase yourself it is well worth going to a sale to watch what goes on.
