Our beautiful, chocolate coloured ram Sam sadly died this morning of natural causes in his field amongst his friends. He had a lovely life. His birth 8 years ago was such a surprise as we hadn't realised his Mum was pregnant, so little Sam the ram lamb was a joy! He was so handsome but above all gentle and sweet natured. Everyone admired him and he loved taking gingernuts from the hands of children! We'll miss you Sam and so will your flock of girls x

We will.miss our Soay Sheep. They left us yesterday. They went to a great home were they will live a long and happy life. We just decided they were not a great fit for us. Jeni especially will miss them. The white face one was her favorite. #homestead #soaysheep

This is one of my favorite memories of the #soaysheep of #StKilda. There was, literally, a "lamb gang" aka The Bad Lambs. They were the lambs born earlier in the season, and not unlike human teenagers, they were allowed by their moms to meet up and roam the village by themselves. Here they are, on a Friday night, running around just for the fun of it. They'd orbit around the ewes once in a while, and then they were off again, probably sneaking sips of whisky and smoking behind the Factor's House. We also caught a few of them necking. Delightful! At the end of the vid, I'm trying to recall one of the britishisms I heard in Scotland. It was "What are you like", which is said to someone who has done or said something silly/daft. I learned something every day on #Hirta.

Because you know breakfast is good when you can actually fit in your food bowl whilst eating it. #soaysheep #tablemanners #notsharing

We have a huge flock of #soaysheep 🐑 now - we started with just 8 & now have over 100!

So we're looking to reduce our numbers! If you graze #horses did you realise the benefits of grazing #sheep with horses?

The horse parasites don't infect sheep & vise versa. Sheep consume larvae from the pasture that would otherwise infest the horses.The sheep also graze the grass down to allow better growth, whereas horses patch graze and tear grass, leaving the paddock a bit clumpy.
They graze together happily, horses love lambs for company.

Grazing in this way saves a lot of topping & management.

Get in touch if you would like to know more, we have either lambs or older ewes & rams available.
Soay sheep are very low maintenance and do NOT require shearing, dagging or much intervention at all - just worming & the occasional horn trim! #giveasheepahome #lambs #lambstock #flock #rarebreed #savethesheep
