Pagan lambs 2014
Once again the excellent growth rate of the Pagan lambs has enabled us to select some for the sales this year. 4 out of the 5 lambs entered for Carlisle 2014 were Pagan sons and Pagan son Airyolland Waltzer topped the sale at Lanark 2014 selling for 2300gns.
We are so impressed with the gigots, weight gain and growth rate of his lambs that we used sons, Airyolland Watchman, ARY W74, in 2014 and Airyolland Slingshot ARY S56 and Airyolland Spock ARY S71 in 2012 in our flock.
ARY S63. A 2 week old Tup lamb off Airyolland Pagan. 2nd Prize ram lamb at Lanark 2012 and sold for 650gns.
Pagan is a sired by the bare blue Airyolland Navajo who goes back to the Werbrouk family in our flock.
His dam Airyolland Magpie ARY M60 is sired by Airyolland Kingsize.
The bare, blue, extreme muscling from the Werbrouk family meeting the size and gigot score of the Kingsize family has led to this impressive ram we have retained to use at home.
Pagan's influence on the flock has carried on through the generations of with him siring renowned sires such as Weapon who had sired rams sold to 16000gns and 10000gns. He is also great grand sire of 65000gns Airyolland Castro sold in 2018.

The other Pagan son at Carlisle, Airyolland Slingshot ARY S056, also headed to Wales after being bought by Jones & Roberts, Penparc for 1600gns and has since bred 1st prize ram lamb at the Royal Welsh Show 2014.
Four Pagan sons were in our pen of 11 at Kelso and they sold particularly well. Airyolland Sputnick sold for £1550, to John Hall (Inglewood Edge), which was the second top Beltex price of the day. The other sons made £1100, £800 and £650.
The growth rate and weight gain enabled us to sell two of his sons, who were not ETs as ram lambs at Lanark 2012. We sold to a top price of 1000gns for Pagan son Airyolland Scaramanga, ARY S62, who goes to join the Lethans flock of Mr A Shaw, West Lethans, Dunfermline. Our other Pagan son, Airyolland Socrates, ARY S63, was second in the pre sale show and went on to sell for 650gns to M Boustead, High Lane, NewBigginng on Lune, Cumbria.
