Hi from Leicestershire
« on: March 11, 2013, 09:44:15 pm »
Hi everyone  :wave:
I'm Louise.  I've got horses, run a small contracting/paddock maintenance service with my tractors. I also recently started working for a large contractor, before that i was fulltime on a dairy farm. I'm not from a farming family, just rent a few acres for the horses. My main reason for joining here is last year i brought 6 southdown ewes and am now only 2 weeks off hopefully :fc: some lambs arriving! ;D
Hoping that any problems that may appear i can ask here! :thumbsup:

 :wave:  just have a few hens and of course my Labs, we moved here, central Scotland from Leicestershire 5 years ago and do not miss the traffic etc, miss the market and the people though. I was born and worked in Leic so no it well, my area was Leicestershire, I loved Melton Market!!!! Father in law came from a farming background too, anyway, nice to have another person on here from my home land!!! :wave:
