The mad rooter is gone. And no doubt much to the chagrin of a few bidders he was taken away by a bloke called Mohammed. Mohommed said he wasn't for the pot straight away but in the back of the ute was a bucket with a steel and knife. So it looks like there will a fair bit of mutton curry around Masterton soon. Perhaps even the Goan Mutton Curry below - which looks pretty bloody good to us.

Anyway Nigel our stud muffin Wiltshire ram on the left is now in charge of three ewes. To say he is happy is an understatement.

All proceeds will be heading to the Christchurch Earthquake appeal. Thanks to all those who took an interest in the auction. The mad rooter auction attracted nearly 10,000 views.
And here is a selection of some of the best comments...
