That is brilliant, Sim.  I'd be proud too if she was my daughter - what a wee star. ;D :thumbsup:

Sounds like you should be looking into sending her to Agricultural College in due course. I suggest you get a few prospectus' in and go through them with her. Hands on is wonderful, back that up with the correct qualifications and she will have a good head start.

Any experience is good and she has lots of time to get hands on.

I was at school with a little lad called Clive who wanted to leave as soon as possible to be a farmer. He lived near the centre of Derby, so couldn't really be further away from it. For a couple of years he got up in the early hours and cycled out of town to help with milking. After school he would be back at the farm until dark. Needless to say he was pretty dozy in classes and was ridiculed a fair bit. After failing most of his 'O' levels he left and I met him by accident a few weeks later. He was competing at a local show and would we like to come over to see it. Well it turned out he was in a sheep shearing competion and they were about as big as he was. We were amazed when he rolled this sheep over and started cutting away. Even more amazed when he won the competition !!!!

I'm sure she will do really well Simba. Pretty unusual for someone that age to know what they want and actually go for it. I thought they all sat on the sofa playing computer games nowadays?

I can with hand on heart say she would rather read a book than play on a computer im sure it will come and bite me one day but at the moment all is good thank you all for your comments and will keep all updated as she goes on
