Miserden Texels winners of 2020 Gloucester and Border Counties Flock Competition Championship

Introducing our new Texel Ram Lamb, Cambwell Dreadnought (Robbie).  Purchased at English National sale at Worcester last week.  Really delighted with him.  Will look forward to seeing his progeny next spring.
Fabulous top line, always stands square, head full of character.

Miserden Blue Texels have several top class shearling ewes for sale.

We have thirty Texel shearling rams and fifteen Blue Texels for sale.  Well grown, Signet recorded showing great muscle and conformation. 
Well recomended by regular purchasers. 

Texels, Blue Texels and Charolais X Texels for sale this year.  All our stock reared commercially.  No embryo transfer, so no lambs reared by milky Mules, simply on their own mothers.  Usually as twins.  All showing excellent, genuine growth rates.
Shearlings, lambs and possibly some older animals will all be for sale.
MV accredited and Scrapie monitored.  Crossbred ewes ideal as recipients.
Please ring or email for more details.

Sensible prices.  Crossbreds from £150, Texel and Blue texel shearling ewes from £400
Top of the range breeding stock from £600 upwards.
Also have five blue Blue Texel x Lleyn ewe lambs if anyone just wants colour but not desperate for pedigree animals.  Crossed with a Blue texel will always breed blue.
Numerous white Blue Texel x Lleyn ewe lambs as well. 

Shearling ewes just freshly sheared, heading back to their field.  Texels, Blue Texels and crossbreds suitable for recipients will be for sale later this year.  All MV accredited and scrapie monitored.

Miserden Texels and Corinium Blue Texels head to Russia, for the Agros Expo in Moscow.  Russian farmers will be offered the chance to purchase breeding stock to improve their indigenous sheep breeds, producing better quality meat.

My new book 'If Clouds Were Sheep' is now available worldwide from Amazon. It can also be purchased from WHSmiths, Waterstones, and independent book shops.  Retail price £8.99
Anyone who would like to purchase from me direct may do so.  I will send out a signed copy for £12 to include postage and packing.

It is a tale of how Miserden Texels evolved.  A story that contains family and friends, sheep and dramas.  Difficult lambings, show successes and foreighn travel resulting in our sheep being sold worldwide.
I so hope you all enjoy it.

Miserden Young Rebel, sire of Builth Champion Miserden Blitzen and one of two Blue Texels being used on commercial flocks for the Signet Ram Compare scheme.

As if winning the breed Champion at both Moreton and Newbury were not enough, we then produced Miserden Blitzen, by Miserden Young Rebel, to become supreme Champion at Builth Blue Texel Show and sale.  Sold to Mathew Jones at Glan Y Mor Blue Texels who we wish great success with. 

Blue Texel Miserden Amber excelled herself again at Moreton in Marsh show, winning Breed Championship, Continental Interbreed and Reserve Overall Supreme to a lovely Southdown.
Then our Blue ewe lamb, having won her class, went forward with Giles Hardman's winning ram lamb and they secured the Interbreed Pairs Championship.
Pretty good day really.

Miserden Texels won Senior ram and Ewe lamb classes at Moreton show, with the ewe lamb winning Best Lamb cup and Championship rosette.  Picture of her after washing her hair!

We were delighted with both the Whites and Blue Texels at Three Counties Show this year.  We only took four White lambs but came 5th with the group then both ram lambs in the rosettes coming 5th and 7th in big classes.
Blue Texel shearling ewe Miserden Amber (below) stole the show in her class winning 1st prize.

Not only pretty to look at and great carcass sheep but Miserden Alesia was placed 3rd in Wool on the Hoof in a class of fifteen natural coloured breeds of all types.

Congratulations to Guiting Manor Farms for winning Moreton in Marsh 2017 Awards.

Texel shearling Rams

August 2016

We have a good selection of Texel, Blue Texel and Lleyn Shearling Rams for sale to suit all purposes and all budgets.  The majority of the sheep are Signet recorded and we do have several top quality High Index rams with excellent figures.

We have both both white Texels and Blue Texels, (lighter in bone with narrow heads, ideal for first time lambers) and some Lleyns.  Farmers who have bought the Blue texels have been very pleased with the carcase conformation of their lambs and the easy lambing.

Our white Texels are bigger animals, but we  produce a lighter headed, easy lambing commercial ram, and our buyers come back on a regular basis because they are very satisfied with the stock.

A couple of older rams we have bred may also be available from a dispersing flock.

All the flock is High Health Status.


White and Blue Texel Shearling Rams for sale direct from farm.  Give us a ring. 07702 670808 or 07808 593359

Texel Shearling Ewes

We have a few Texel Shearling ewes still for sale, a number of which are very High Index Signet recorded sheep. 

Blue Texels

We will have a selection of Blue texel shearling ewes, ram lambs and older rams at the Society sales at Worcester ( 2nd September 2016) and the NSA Builth sale (19th September 2016).  All are naturally bred and raised on their mothers so they are unique breeding rather than embryo transfer litters.  We also have an excellent selection of Blue Texel shearling rams for sale direct from the farm, ideal for either the commercial farmer or the Blue Texel breeder.

Miserden Texels and Blue Texels will be exhibiting at both Moreton in Marsh Show, September 3rd 2016 and Royal Berkshire (Newbury) September 17th 2016.  Do come and talk to us about the sheep.
