Willie Blackhall

It is with great sadness that the Society of Border Leicester Sheep Breeders announces the passing of William Blackhall of the Deeside flock. One of five brothers their father John had a small flock of Borders in 1937. William’s earliest memories of the breed were in1945 at the age of ten feeding tup  hoggs on the way to school. The Deeside flock was formed in the early sixties, a former council member and stalwart of the breed, his enthusiasm charm and wit will be missed by all who knew him.
