Sheep get ready for summer
We've been shearing sheep in to the night. Good news for the sheep as it is getting hot. Fleeces are worth nothing at the moment. Less than £1 each. It costs £5 a sheep to get them sheared. Also, because we have had such strange weather the sheep have not produced the best wool this year. We have rare breed sheep at Stone Circle Livery. Soay sheep are from the Isle of Soay in the highlands. Southdown sheep are also rare breed and we think they look like teddy bears. Both breeds do well in Kent. The pictures show the sheep after a short bahhhhck and sides and the fleeces stacked up ready to go.
