Hi Andy

I am also in Kent - near Canterbury - I have 35 ewes at the moment and I am picking up another 25 on Friday. Mine are a mixture of pedigree Romney and Jacobs.

What sort of thing are you looking for?

Cheers

Andy

thanks for your reply, im looking for a nice breed that have nice meaty lambs, that handle and lamb well, that also will work hard for there food, (scrubland) i like the look of the Romney, I have got 10 store lambs at the moment, southdowns, doing well and going in october to the abottoir, and looking to move up to the next stage.

Hello

Personally I think that the Romney is a great breed, they are docile and easy to handle and lamb very well either indoors or outdoors. I lambed in April and my first batch are heading off in two weeks with an average weight of 43kg which I am very pleased with...

There are quite a few people selling ewes at the moment ahead of the big sale in Ashford in October. Let me know if you want to be put in touch with them.

Cheers

Andy
