Sheep Texel cross Suffolk ewes on parents farm lambing down on both outdoors and indoors systems, general day to day care of animals and diagnoses any problem sheep along with horses used to have my own 16.2 bay gelding called Lance.
Hard working, self motivated I work just as good in a team or by myself what ever is required and I know one end of the brush from the other.
Horror movies, rugby fan, fast cars and bikes, this doesn't mean I drive equipment like a race car theres a time and place and any yards or fields isn't the place, another ten minutes to keep equipment in top condition shouldn't worry you if you're anything like myself.
Apart from working on my parents place which is only sheep, where I know how to worm, footrimming etc I have worked on very big farms in the past acres up into 8000 usually mixed farm arable and ewes including lambing, as well as my parents own much smaller 120 acre where im used to keeping the farm properly maintained . I come with a vast tractor trailer experience hauling grain and silage or maize from harvesters to sheds pushing up at the store and moving bales with a telehandler experiences to suite the jobs and hedge trimming also verge trimming on busy highways, power harrowing, ploughing, etc. Hay and silage. Worked a few harvest seasons on Arable and then on potatoes 750 acres of spuds seemed a lot to me. However in the long term Im looking for something more permanent.
Having been raised on a family farm since a very young age I possess the relevant skills with different types of animals husbandry with a slight higher skill set towards sheep, maintaining own equipment, basic workshop skills when I have the right equipment to keep myself working.
Not afraid of hard work its not all days inside a comfy cab, Im old enough now to relish the time outside just as much.

I'm open to seasonal but I'm really after something more permanent Not tied to any specific areas, although this would really require some acceptable accommodation.
