What you want to hear about…

Our sheep are “sacking up” in preparation for lambing (that means they are developing udders full of milkfor baby lambs to nurse!)

First to go in lambing are: Cotswold, Shetland and the new Leicester Longwools (mostly colored) that we added this year from MN

Traditional sheep breeds ‘go into heat’ in the fall triggered by the change in seasons and the temperature change to cooler nights. It’s wierd science.

We ate at..

Rose & Crown British Pub  at EPCOT

Look up the Orkney Islands here

Cotswold Cheese info

Scotch Egg – hardboiled egg wrapped in sausage and fried

Cider and Black – Hard Cider with black currant juice
