Portland sheep in Scotland
« on: June 11, 2011, 02:59:11 pm »
We're thinking of buying in some Portland sheep. Does anyone have experience of keeping them in Scotland or the North of England? How hardy are they? Our land is in a sheltered river valley but it gets damn cold: -18 the last 2 winters and 3 feet of snow!
