Princessrubyk  - we are going to look at some Ryelands this weekend - very excited.  Going totally against our farmer friend and family farmers! But I have a great lady locally who is giving us plenty of good advise.

We are in Suffolk - we had looked at Suffolk sheep but they aren't so foot hardy as the Ryedales and our land gets wet in the winter.  Our flock number should arrive tomorrow and we are good to go.   Oh, and we have to finish the stock fencing . . .
