This is my first entry to the blog and I hope there will be many more. I am a 13 year old boy who has just started my very own flock. People have been telling me that I should give it a try, so here I go!
Let me tell you a bit of history about my family. My granddad has one of the oldest Suffolk sheep flocks in England and I will be able to ask him for some advice even though he lives a long way away. I lived in Northumberland for most of my life and moved to Worcestershire 3 years ago as my dad changed jobs. My dad once trained as a Farm manger and then turned into a Professional Rugby player and now is a rugby coach.
It all started about a year and half ago when I met a lady in the village who was my mum’s friend. She offered me 2.7 acres of land, she knew I wanted to be a shepherd and have my own sheep.
My plans for the future include:
· Breeding ewe lambs so I have a bigger flock.
· Produce my own meat to sell and to eat.
· Finally the main thing is to have fun.
If you have enjoyed my first blog I hope you will check my blog again next week!!
