Hi I am new to the forum. I have a place in the Scottish Borders, where I keep 3 horses and 10 Shetland sheep. Am looking to sell at least 4 or 5 sheep to someone that will keep them for their wool, rather than consumption! There are 3 wethers and 7 ewe hogs.   :sheep: :)

Hello from Devon :wave: I love Shetlands but a bit too far away for me.

hi from fife i have 10 shetlands but mine are definitely bred to be duel purpose boys go in freezer girls produce more :-) wool from all of them hopefully, daughter is learning to spin and i suppose long term this will govern which ewes we keep based on fleece as well as ease of management.
do love my sheeps though!  :love: :love: :love: :sheep: :sheep: :sheep: :love: :love: :love:
