Some terms I hadn't come across before.  If you use the word "teg" in Wales they look distinctly puzzled.

Quite a lot of those are American terms.
Is it time to retire yet?

Woolcock - a husband of sheep    ??? ???  My mind is boggling  :thinking:


Interesting though incomplete - I suppose it's impossible to add in every variation (many of which have popped up on TAS at various times).   And they didn't have 'yan, tan, tethera............'.  The other night in a programme I've forgotten the name of, an auctioneer in a sheep mart of half a century ago used the word 'tethera' I thought, but as I barely understood a word of what he said, I could well be wrong.  I thought it was just used for counting sheep.

Some of the older farmers round here still count sheep like that, yan, tan, tethera, etc   :farmer:
