The sale of an original oil painting was held during Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers’ annual sale of 1212 Blackface shearlings, aged rams and ram lambs on Saturday October 20.

The painting, Market Day at Dalmally, was donated by Alan Watson, former managing director of United Auctions, who was presented with the work on his retirement in 1999.

The painting, by the late John Prentice, was sold to Ian Hunter, Dalchirla, for £2,000 in aid of RSABI.
