I have now been keeping Swaledales for Mutton for over ten years. It has not been easy for most of that time due to one thing and another, and we have moved around a bit since those early days.
But one thing i do miss is writing about the sheep. Almost as soon as i first bought my nascent flock, i started writing a blog once or twice a month for the Farmers Guardian newspaper.
A move from Yorkshire to Gloucestershire with my main job meant i had to stop doing that, but i enjoyed it so much i thought i would start a blog again.
Hence this page! It will be written as and when i get a chance, and will discuss what is happening with the sheep themselves, the mutton they produce and anything related to said sheep!
