Skipton sale was worth it for Matilda

TWO working sheepdogs from Dumfries and Galloway made an impact at the CCM Skipton online summer sale.

They achieved among the top calls at last week’s event for vendor Matilda Young from Cairnryan.

It was a good result for her debut at the North Yorkshire venue.

Matilda’s first £5100 performer was February, 2021, black, white and tan dog, Lad, above, by Jordan McGowan’s Tony, out of JL McMillan’s Page. The solid all-rounder returned to Scotland with a Perthshire buyer who requested anonymity.

She made an immediate impact when a second dog entered netted £4700. The May, 2020, Ingleborough Stella, fully bred by John Kelsall, by his Seth out of Denwyn Jess, goes to Cumbria with Cockermouth sheep farmer Neil Marston.

Matilda said she was pleased with her near £10,000 haul for her two Skipton sales.

She has been breeding, working and trialing dogs for six years, finishing fifth in last year’s Scottish National with another high-class bitch Jess.
