Grey Faced Dartmoor Sheep to Oakberrow

At last I have done it!!!! Acquired some Grey faced Dartmoor sheep.  For very many years I have admired this breed and took the jump and bought 3 in-lamb ewes from the Muddl'le flock from Shrewsbury owned by Liz Dawson.  Steve and I had a great time choosing our girls and Liz was most informative about the breed. 

So Dot, Willow and Cleo have arrived at Oakberrow and we are truly smitten with these gorgeous girls who will hopefully lamb in February. This is Dot
