Wiltshire Horn Sheep - no need to shear

I hope it is OK to post this as it is a For Sale.  If not will the mods please remove it

Anyway I have for sale five very well grown pedigree registered  Yearling Wiltshire Horn ewes, running with registered ram since November and not returned to service so believed in lamb

They were purchased from breeder who has won "Flock of the Year" more than once, and had highest price ram ever sold in the breed.

They are a big meaty breed and have a close fleece which they shed naturally each spring, so no need to shear and less problems with fly strike

Will come to call and follow bucket.   I am on Worcester / Herefordshireborders.  I have a trailer so can deliver at cost as long as not tooooo far away.

I have lost my "help" this year, and cannot manage alone owing to back problems, so will accept price I paid last spring, though they have matured well since.

Hi All - Had quite a lot of interest and got asked lots of questions, most of which I couldn't answer, so contacted the breeder and the upshot is she is buying them back  :) (must admit I didn't think of contacting her first :-[ ) and she has arranged to collect them from me Monday week.   

So... very many thanks for the interest everyone.  And Happy New Year
