Me, too. And the Northern Ryeland Breeders' Group - I've never been a member of so many groups!

I usually take some sort of stock to the annual Ryeland show & sale at Ludlow always held on the Saturday of the August Bank holiday weekend. Sadly cancelled last year because of foot & mouth and this year we can't really take anything because of the Bluetongue as we are supposedly in a clear area in Mid Wales and if any of the animals don't sell, we can't bring them back, which would break my heart.

Hi everyone,

Sorry been away from accidental smallholder for AGES, too much work. After having a difficult lambing season, I have decided to put my ryelands to either a beltex or easycare this year. One of my ewes is going to be sent for meat and the others look very healthy. I have vaccinated for bluetongue and just vaccinated the lamb for pulpy kidney, as my friend lost a couple of lambs to it and vaccinated the rest.

I am now looking to get some more stewardship land and buy some more sheep, maybe badgers or some more ryelands.

Ooh been working at Bransby horses home and brought my work home... in the form of Tinker, a serverely overweight riggy shetland cross exmoor.  Nobody else wanted him for re-homing but he has been perfect since he came home and I am now working with hime everyday.

Sounds like you've been having an interesting summer.

Can we see some pics of Tinker? He sounds VERY interesting! Is he big enough to ride or is he going to have a driving / working career?

Hi Rosemary,
I will try to upload a picture but it never works with me How do you do it? He is only 10 hands but has huge shoulders and neck, Holly and I have started to back him but he will make a brilliant driving pony so that will be next.
