More than 5,000 rams were up for sale at one of the biggest agricultural events in the Borders today.
The Kelso Ram Sale attracts thousands of spectators every year, as farmers buy and sell in time for the breeding season - and this year there was a royal visitor.
Watch the full report from Jenny Longden below.
Organisers hope that around £2.5million will exchange hands at the Kelso Ram Sales.
More than 5000 rams have been entered for sale.
It's the 175th year of the famous sales, organised by the Border Union Agricultural Society.
The Countess of Wessex started sales at Kelso's Springwood Park today, as patron of the Border Union Agricultural Society.
The 175 year event always begins with a bell ringing at exactly 10am.
Sophie, The Countess of Wessex, joined Secretary Ron Wilson in the traditional bell ring this morning (13th September).
