An April 8th, 2021-born sheepdog pup, set what is understood to be a new world record price when she changed hands for £10,600 plus 5% buyer’s premium earlier this week.

Newbold Caz topped Farmers Marts’ timed internet auction of working sheepdogs this week, which saw 156 lots go under the hammer.

Newbold Caz by K Evans, Brecon is the daughter of Simon Cottrell’s Jewel (full sister of K Evans’ Red Spot) and K Evans’ Red Jaff.
