Being new to sheep and all there is to learn, I have found pronouncing the name of my Zwartbles one of the most challenging tests so far! The breeder calls them 'Shwarbles', the vet calls them 'Zwartbulls', the shearer calls them 'Zwarbles'and a neighbouring farmer calls them 'Zwerballs'! Each one laughs at me if I accidentally call them by what the other person calls them. So I have given up and just call them 'The Zeds'!

I just tried it too - it works, but I'm glad I'm alone!

I know quite a few people with Zeds!  Luing cattle cause a similar problem, so much so the breed society newsletter was renamed "The Silent U".

Now that just propagates the confusion about Ling cattle, 'Ling' sheep...  ;D

There are some nice looking ones in there Zwartbles - are they your own, or is that just a random weblink?

We have another couple arriving on Friday - One T-Reg old dear and her C-reg ewe lamb from this year. Here's a pic of my favourite Zwartbles ewe (see what I did there?  ;) ). She's gorgeous!
