Thanks to everybody whose read this post!! And in particular to those who've tried to keep the thread on track and not get hung up on definitions of novice/smallholder/farmer.
I don't think it would have got 1170 views if I'd not put a few true salient clinical points in the discussion, and had just said to check your sheep.  Insensitive? No. Thought provoking? Yes.
As far as how to condition score, breed variation etc I think figures are less important than just being savy.  Are my sheep loosing/ gaining weight? Is this what I would expect re weather, stage of production cycle, feeding? If not, whats going wrong? What do I do next?
Thanks again everyone.  I suggest we draw the thread to a close before it deteriorates any further.
