What a year its been for varied weather , wet March and April and some scorching latre April and early May sunshine. The Longwools are out in the sunshine and will soon be getting those coats taken off
Our first Loddington Longwool entry into the Leicestershire Show resulted in a third place finish for 'Loddington Arnie'. Thanks to Ruth, Ben and Amelia for the logistics. The Leicester Longwool marquee was splendidly laid out and the organisers had made a great effort...
We're looking forward to the Rutland Show this year on Sunday 5th June 2016. We've a small pen of sheep on the NFU Mutual Stand. We'll show you some of the things that wool from a Leicester Longwool can be used for.
After a series of frosty morning and very little rain the grass has been struggling to get away. However, warmer sunshine and a nice spell of rain and 'growing weather' ! The lambs are growing and the flock is grazing outside the visitors centre at Loddington.
