why would anyone have an objection. each breed has its own good and bad bits if you want them and have read up go for it.

I am sure there is a breeder in the Devon area who advertises in the Devon Smallholder Association Magazine (DASH).  They are nice sheep, but too small for me!

I Have found a breeder in oakhampton who sells them so getting hold of them should not be a problem. They are a little small but as  i only want a few and am not looking to make profit then i think they will be sufficient. I just wanted something that was a little unusual and nice to look at. Still look forward to seeing some lleyns though Freddie at the Devon county show and may have several of them aswell.
