We have kept sheep for some 15 years. Originally we had sheep from petting farms as grass cutters. At some point we aquired Shetland sheep. The reasons are lost in the mists of time. We like to think that it was something to do with their size, small and nimble,and therefore easy to handle. Oh and then there was their colour….the rich dark brown called ‘moorit’. Shetland sheep do in fact come in the full range of colours from white to black and everything in between. We focus on breeding the darker colours. Of our original trio we still have two of them, Jenny and Holly , a testament to their longevity and our care. Our flock has extended over the years. The breeding ewes tend to lamb twins each year. All our sheep are known by name which is just as well given the regularity with which they loose their ear tags.
