yes I agree Robert. I was looking at the Giveaways section on Angloinfo.com as many Brits give animals away ( a Shetland pony today) - anyway i then looked at what animals are for sale.

I think this is so expensive but typical of some Brits here trying to make money. You would not believe the price they try for a second hand cars ( RHD as well).

Think I'll stick to the lad down the lane for my weaners rather than grow my own heard.

Hi Max - I'm looking for a pedigree (with proven ancestry) GOS and have had no luck in finding the right one so far.  Would be more than willing (not necessarily happy) to pay 300euros.  One the other day was 500euros here in France but not the right blood line as I am trying to follow the 'cyclic breeding' system.  Do you remember who was selling the GOS might be something I'd be interested in.  Thanks Richard and Jan.

Animals here are sold in the small adds by the Kilo. It is usually at a similar price to the finished meat costs so seems VERY expensive to me. I have only bought a couple of lambs so far and paid 25 euro each for them. (they came with mum who went back in the autumn!
