    Thinking of changing to shedding sheep. Change my mind.

    i think in another 10 maybe 20 years virtually all sheep in uk will be shedders, then kingspan will become the new asbestos and they'll be a big demand for wool insulation. But as it stands wools worthless and not really worth the effort

    Grass growth (lack of)

    no rain here either apart from a few spots, and that were it. heavy due this morning though which were a little surprising

    Grass growth (lack of)

    it were dry and east winds this time last year around here, by time we got to june there were plenty of rain for rest of summer. i have noticed in recent weather patterns that we don't seem to get april showers any more
