The popularity of rare breeds and the growing interest in keeping livestock on a few acres has encouraged many people to establish a small flock of sheep. These enthusiastic new flockmasters, whether they keep rare breeds, native sheep, or some of the continental imports now well established in the UK, require a basic understanding of sheep management which must be just as thorough as that required by farmers running large commercial flocks. Looking after a small flock of sheep can become a most enthralling hobby but newcomers can find it difficult to relate to books written for commercial farmers. This book seeks to encourage, advise and even entertain the new small-scale sheep keeper by setting out the principles of good husbandry based on sound, practical experience.
