Sheep Calendar.....
« on: March 20, 2009, 07:59:01 pm »
....no,not half shorn sheep photographed in black and white arty poses!

A long long time ago on here,someone mentioned that they were going to put together a calendar of what to do with your sheep each month,when to vaccinate,drench,shear,put to the ram etc et al.
 I've had a quick look but can't seem to find it. Is there any kind soul out there who could put together a "monthly jobs list", and then maybe Dan could make it a "sticky" for us newbies to refer to? ....... Ree

Mr Ree, found your posting interesting as we are getting sheep soon, hopefully Ouessant castrates for our pub petting area, but found it twice as interesting as you have the same surname as me (not a very common one) I live in Herefordshire whereabouts are you?
