Gray Face Dartmoor sheep

  |   Category: Education

Our Greyface Dartmoor sheep are a joy to have on the farm, but their thick coats means that you have to tend to them when their coasts are at its thickest to keep their rear ends clean! Not our favourite job. The other big happening this week - was the first of the lambs and their mums plus last year's shearlings put out to pasture - thank goodness for the improving dry weather.
