Wanted - breeding ewes near Calne, Wiltshire
« on: November 16, 2013, 03:19:49 pm »
I know its a bit last minute but I am after a small number (maybe two or three) ewes to breed from this year.
I'm not too fussed about what breed they are and I don't mind if they are slightly older animals, as long as they are healthy and fit to breed from this year.

I wasn't planning on having lambs next year but circumstances have changed and my little girl is desperate to have some now.

I am in Calne, Wiltshire so the closer the better, anything considered. I may also be interested in the loan of a couple of ewes as I have the land and a Ram etc

Thanks - Simon

I am near Pewsey and have some Suffolk x lambs available. They are a good size and are bucket trained.

All, thank you for the replies - very much appreciated.

Fowlman - that's very kind of you, I would appreciate any information.

ScotrGirl - thank you, and I don't want to sound ungrateful but I ideally want some ewes that are a little older and more experienced at lambing but I very much appreciate your response.

Shaun - I have sent you a message RE the Charolais'  ewes - thank you

Cheers-Simon
