Apologies to all those who believe in purebred lambing, but we have crossed our Portland ram Moonlight with a couple of our Zwartble ewes this year, to see whether this crossbreeding enhances the flavour and quality of the meat. Never fear though, the Portland ewe lambs have been retained as purebreeds.
Although we keep a few sheep, we do not profess to be shepherds or farmers and we aren't great at herding. We try hard, but I am sure most sheep farmers would find us embarrassing! So in an effort to perform a little better, we have decided to increase our menagerie with a 'man's best friend', one who is supposed to have a 'natural' instinct for herding sheep.
So, meet "Devonairs Quad" our newly acquired Australian kelpie.
