A DESCENDANT of a famous Powys breeder's dog was sold to a buyer in Korea at a sale this week.

Skipton Auction Mart’s summer sale comprised 36 fully broken, 30 part broken and 23 unbroken dogs.

Among those represented was Kevin Evans, of Brecon, who achieved the top sale price for the field run dogs with his 18 month old black and white bitch, Kemi Nan, who has pups due in July.

Described as a quality, classy female, suitable for both farm and trial work, the daughter of his international trial winner, Derwen Doug sold for £7,000 to John Jennings of Pembroke.

Evans has made a major impact at both live and online Skipton sheepdog sales in recent years, regularly heading the selling prices with his own dogs, among them several at five-figure sales, some setting new world records, while others of his breeding in different hands have also commanded solid prices.

The day’s top price was closely followed by seller Ian Dodd of Laylianen, Finland.

He sold 15 month old Black and White Dog, Wyverene Max – a son of Kevin Evan’s Derwen Doug - for £6,900 to buyer Jaehoon Lee, in Korea.

Though no records were broken, prices held firm on the whole, with trained and part-trained dogs selling between £300 and £7,000.

The sale prices of unbroken youngsters ranged from £600 to £2,100.

The sale’s leading price for an unbroken dog was attained by D. Bevan of Builth Wells. His 10 week old, striking lilac bitch, Floss, sold to S. Holt for £2,100.

Skipton Auction Mart’s general manager and auctioneer Jeremy Eaton said: "The power of the online selling system has been well illustrated at previous sales by the fact that we have been able to match dogs from handlers here in the UK and abroad with buyers across the globe.

"This sale offered a comprehensive selection of fully broken, part-broken and unbroken dogs for both farm work and as trial prospects to suit most tastes and pockets. It was great to see another varied selection of buyers and sellers."
