Two young bulls represented the Boars Head winter show team at the East of England Smithfield Festival in December, held at the Peterborough Showground and in strong classes, Boars Head Daredevil took the reserve championship. Born October 2012, Daredevil is by Sacombe Balmoral and is out of Hockenhull Trudy 36th, who was purchased privately from Ann and Tony Jukes’ Swallowhill herd, having been bought by them at the Hockenhull dispersal sale for 11,000gns.

Then standing third in his class was Boars Head Dallas, another strong son of the successful past herd sire Seaview Prince Charming and out of Oakhill Nelly 21, a Starline Klassik daughter. This one will also be for sale in Stirling alongside Daredevil.
