  1. I've just spent an hour watching Springtime on the Farm, which is back for a week on Channel 5 at 8pm every night (starting Monday 9 April 2018).

    So I thought it would be an opportunity to raise awareness of a couple of sheep societies and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, too.  They all run memberships, and it's a great way to support their work to raise awareness of sheep breeds and discover more about this woolly animals.

It works to promote the conservation and preservation of Hebridean sheep as a distinctive, viable breed, and to educate and inform the public of the virtues of the Hebridean sheep.   Join the Hebridean Sheep Society here
     Join the Shetland Sheep Society The Shetland Sheep Society has almost 500 members around the UK and further afield.   Their members are passionate about the breed and you don't have to own sheep to join.  The society aims to support the breed.   You'll find membership benefits here and you can join here.
