Just want to introduce my self (our selves)
Alex and Esther, live in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, about 850 ft above seal level where we have Derbyshire Redcap hens and a small flock of Whitefaced Woodland sheep.
Came on here as it is good to learn and share.

Welcome to TAS from a showery and windy Somerset :wave: . We are on the Levels so probably below sea level! This site is full of invaluable information. Don't know what I would have done without it when I was starting out. :)


How long have you been keeping sheep?

Well, this year we are on " T " and we took a couple of years before we started on the alphabet, so 22 years I guess.

White faced Woodland can have really nice fleece for spinning... :spin:  :innocent: :eyelashes:
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Hi Alex and welcome to TAS from s windy and cold Mid Wales :wave: 
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.
