Not just now, but have had them previously. They are my second favourite breed.

Yes I am slowly recovering some of my old blood lines.................................. I purchased the Berkham Herd when the late Betty Rochford died in the early '80s.

Will gradually use the old semen that is still available from my old boys to close the circle again.

These were very heavy milking lines...............there are others, particularly the Brynglas Herd in Wales bred by Enid Crook.

The Horsehay herd are amazing, they come to the worcester goat society show every year and are a fantastic example of the breed. They are in Shropshire (telford) you can email Jade here     horsehay-goats@hotmail.co.uk
She can also put you in touch with breeders nearer to you if you like, lisa
