Aren't the coloured Ryelands generally even more in demand and expensive?

Most of mine are Shetlands, I love Shetlands! Lovely size, fleece, colours and far cheaper. Some say not as attractive as R ...

Thanks for all the replies - it sounds like 200 isn't expensive after all - really useful to know, thanks!

Thanks for the replies. As they aren't lambing this year now, sounds like she should be ok.

I will mention about the blood test for toxoplasmosis in case they can do that for her, be good to know w ...

Thanks Green Rosie for your reply. I don't think they could have got any apples or mushrooms but it could well be a flush of grass (we are in Wales and have had a lot of rain!). If that is the cause t ...
