We would like to remind new members that if you are unsure as to which lambs are suitable for registering and which should not be kept - or maybe you would like advice as to how to finish lambs, or indeed have any questions at all about managing your flock - please do contact the Secretary for contact details off your nearest 'Mentor' who will be happy to help...
A reminder to all members with sheep, that you should Birth Notify or Register, this year's lambs by 30th September. (Remember - you can register sheep in the year following their birth - but only if they were Birth Notified in the year they were born. Please note - Birth Notifying is free!!!!!!)
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.
