Feet have also been trimmed and they will have been run through a footbath prior to departure. They are all bucket trained. A really sorry sale. I will be incredibly sad to see them go. I would prefer them to go to ‘Forever Homes’; to smallholders or as grass grazers and I insist they travel in strawed out trailers on a journey less than 65km in length. They are very much loved sheep and this reflects in their condition and temperament and I will only let them go to quality homes. Buyers are very welcome to visit beforehand by appointment only.
