A Reminder to all members with flocks - please make sure all lambs have been Birth Notified by 30th September. All lambs should be Birth Notified even if they do not reach breed standards - and to do so is FREE! Registered lambs, on the other hand, must reach breed standards as set out in the Flock Book.
Autumn Workshop Day
There will be a 'Care of the Cotswold' workshop day on Sunday 20th October 2019. Please do come along as it will be a day packed with essential information for anyone with a flock of Cotswold sheep.
The Cotswold sheep, often referred to as the 'Cotswold Lion' was introduced to the UK by the Romans. Their wool known as the 'Golden Fleece' was an important export. It not only played a major role in the development of many Cotswold towns and villages, but also in the finances of the nation. Sadly times have changed, and they are now classified as a rare breed.
