Hello All
« on: August 29, 2019, 03:27:28 pm »
Hi Everyone  :wave:

My wife and I have just moved onto a smallholding near Forfar in Angus. We have a small flock of Shetland sheep, a couple of horses, and our two dogs. We're shortly to add hens and ducks to the place too. It's been a steep learning curve so far, but we're thoroughly-enjoying our new life  :thumbsup:

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

All the best,

Woody and Nic

I was rather hoping from your name that you would be a charcoal burner - I would love to meet someone who lives in the woods making charcoal  ;D :tree: :tree: :tree:

Do something today that your future self will thank you for - plant a tree
