I think you are talking about a tCPH? 

If so, then it is the other farmer who would apply for a tCPH on the fields they will use. 

You and the other farmer must not both put livestock on those fields.

As far as I know, your movements would not be affected except if the other farmer comes under any TB restrictions.  Be aware that if the other farmer had restrictions applied at the home CPH, these same restrictions would apply to the tCPH.  If the restrictions extended to adjacent fields/holdings, then the restrictions would also apply to your CPH.  As far as I am aware, bTB movement restrictions arising from detection of bTB in cattle almost never extend to sheep, so if it's only sheep you'd want to move, then it shouldn't affect you.

Thank you he really is an amazing dog. It's rare someone has even heard of the breed so definite kudos to you!

Dogs used to be one of my "special interest"s as a kid.  (I think it's possibly UK sheep now.)  If my *general* knowledge were better and I didn't freeze like a rabbit in headlights in front of a video camera, I could have won Mastermind!  lol

As title


Right, overrun with grass, waiting for mower for what I want done and have offered the rest of place to neighbour for grazing their cattle herd.

I've had a TLA  in the past and I have looked on line but either can't see the answer or not reading right.

I know, if he "marks" 3 fields for his use, he doesn't need to do TB test or movement report to come on/off.

But, can I still move my sheep off/on, to another property (some free grass I get each year, no good for big machinery) without affecting his movements? (My sheep would be On different fields here altogether.)

What we thought might be house martins, because they used to nest in the garage, have been identified as definitely swallows. The reason we can be definite is three flew inside the house yesterday and explored some of the rooms. Two were let out through a window and the other tried to exit via the French doors, which were closed at the time. The result was it knocked itself out on the glass, was picked up and taken outside where it recovered after a minute or so and flew off. Therefore we had the opportunity to have a good look at the feathering.


Not the first time we've had birds in the house, but they are usually blue tits (not including chickens).

Major is a beauty! 

I've met Akitas and Shiba Inus, but never seen a Shikoku in the flesh.
