Balwen join the homestead

To the other livestock we have now added a tiny flock of Pedigree Balwen sheep in the hope of gradually building a flock of our own whose offspring can either be sold as pedigrees or good eating. These sheep are a rare breed, a small welsh mountain sheep native to mountains not too far from us. I always cross graze our fields though with our neighbour’s sheep coming on when we have grass to spare. It really helps with natural worm control if you can follow horses with sheep or even sheep with horses so it makes sense to have a few of our own.
