What are you doing?

I was at the last Scotsheep and it was very good. I was working for RHET so had dozens of schoolkids to take round but it was still interesting.

Working for our farm, I meant.  Researching mobile sheep pens.

I've been to several of these, in the South West as well as up here.  Always enjoyable & informative, to farmer (now) and smallholder-type (as previously) alike.
