We are now proud owners of two new shearling ewes and a tup (bought from Trish Baker) Esme, Chatty and Maxi. Our flock is growing and we are hopeful that softie has done us proud and look forward to new arrival next year.
We hosted the Eastern Regional Jacob Sheep meeting on the 18th September. We were blessed with good weather and 40 + fellow Jacob sheep members. Our day went smoothly and our programme of events ran to time! We had a Q&A session, sheep showing and judging session with David Tufney, Trish Baker, Rosemary Beecher and John Dixon. Diane Cartwright – Bury St Edmunds Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers gave a great demonstration for us all to enjoy and have a go at and we finished with a raffle. The food for the BBQ was supplied by Christmas Hill Farm and all in all it was an enjoyable day.
