Lambing courses - dates to be announced for February 2018

Pupil lambing their first lambThis year at Oakberrow we have increased the number of ewes we are lambing.  The breeds we have are Ryelands, Coloured Ryelands, Greyface Dartmoors and Texel/Beltex ewes.  

They will be scanned in December and then lambing course dates will be posted on the web, but it looks like we will start from the first week in February through to the first week in March 2018.

We enjoy lambing it is always a great feeling seeing the new borns and how they develop.  

Our courses cover all aspects of lambing and we have had great feedback from previous years saying how much they learnt and really enjoyed the experience of attending a course at Oakberrow.

We already have a few people put their names down for lambing courses, so if you are interested please get in touch.  This year we are putting in a 12 hour course as well as the daytime lambing.

Hungarian Wirehaired Vizlsa called Howie - seeks new home and found it. 

Howie on the moveThis lovely two year old castrated boy, is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.  He is obedient and we think he would be happiest living with another dog but certainly an active household.  At present he is living with Yvonne in Somerset and has fitted in really well with her HWVs.  He is docked.  If interested in giving this young handsome lad a home please contact either myself on 01531 640102 or Yvonne on 01984624670.

Howie is a son of Tilly from her first litter.  He has good temperament.  As you can see from the photograph he looks a happy boy.
