Is anyone going to Sheep South West Show?
« on: June 15, 2017, 10:31:12 am »
The NSA Sheep South West Show is on at Tiverton on 20 June.  There's a link to it here http://www.nationalsheep.org.uk/events/diary/7499/nsa-sheep-south-west-2017/ but its not very informative.  Has anyone found a better link?  Has anyone been before?  What is on show there?


I'm going to see Tim W's "'world famous' self shedding sheep" and hopefully someone there will be able to show me how to do a fec. 


Hope to see you there.
Never ever give up.

Sadly I'm en route to Woolfest.  Well, I'm not sad to be en route to the biggest, best and original UK Wool festival, of course  :D, but I am sad to be missing Sheep South West.  I love the NSA events.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
