    Edit: which market do you sell your lambs through hilly bill?
    Swans, although as numbers rise i think i might start to sell some store and they will go to Longtown last time i sold some the mart had them down as texel x s`

    Possibly the best ewe put to the best commercial ram (IMO)? I imagine that will be a bloody good fat lamb - the buyers at market will be clambering over themselves!
