Shearing in south west
« on: April 08, 2011, 08:47:42 pm »
My friend and her husband stay at mine in Somerset for a few weekends during the shearing season. He shears my small flock and has said he can shear for smallholder in the southwest.
If anyone is interested please contact me so that we can arrange times

Bumping up again as he still has a few spaces and that time is nearly upon us.

Remember he doesn't mind the wooliest of rare breeds.

We have a tiny flock of Greyface dartmoors (2 ewes and 3 lambs)  This heat will make them suffer.  Does your friend have any room?  We're in between Wellington and Honiton - Blackdown Hills.  What does he cost (apart from tea/soft drinks/homemade cider which would come as standard)?

Just had a few queries about electricity being needed the answer is no he has his own power. Spaces are getting booked very quickly now if you want a slot please PM me ASAP as he is only over for a couple of weekends to help me and a few smallholders out.

My shearer is due over weekend of 28th may if anyone needs the sheep sheared that weekend. He doesn't mind rare breeds that are really wooly

singing shearer is round this neck of the woods end of weekend (glos/oxon) might be worth giving him a yell
