Yes, it's always written in our local mart catalogue as 'shearlings' but we say it without the 'l'  :)
Oh!  :light bulb:  The 'l' is pronounced hereabouts, I think - I will have to listen harder to be sure! :)
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
