Getting too old and wise to bother with skanky Shetland sheep, they are as skatty as the day is long, the lambs do not fetch good prices and you need a bloody good dog to keep them in order....in the past we have had 4 bloody good dogs in the end to make them work sense.
So I have treated myself to some rather fancy Flock book Texel ewe lambs. Much calmer, easy to round up with a bucket. OK 3 times the size of a Shetland, but you tend not to need to wrestle with them.
