BAD NEWS: Some local sheep, not ours, have been savaged by a dog
and a few of them were killed. This is rare in this area;
the last time it happened to one of our sheep was ten years ago.
Nevertheless, PLEASE, if you use the public footpath through our
fields, keep to it. Dog owners should be aware that they are liable to
have their animals shot if they stray into the fields even if they are not
harassing the sheep.
