New Zealand Trip

We have recently returned from New Zealand. Whilst there we talked to a yarn processor about the possibility of processing some of our lovely fleece into lovely yarn.  This will be a long term project because of the shipping etc. We hope to have our new yarn available early next year.

We stayed overnight with Robin Hilson and Joy Gray of the One Stop Ram Shop farm. We imported semen from some of Robins rams 11 years ago and are now looking to further diversify the genetics in our sheep. All going well we may look at an Artificial Insemination program for next year.

Here is a picture of some of the Finnsheep.
