Looking for shepherding work
I have experience lambing (both
inside and on hill),shearing, fencing, and other
essential livestock tasks as well as training sheepdogs.
Blue Seal in Shearing
Full Car Licence
During my time self employed I carried out a lot of different types of fencing
(stock and wooden, ranging from small gardens to out
on the hill). I also undertook small joinery jobs like
constructing bin stores, dog kennels and a shed
I have had a very strong interest in sheep and
shepherding since a young age. I grew up helping out
where I could with my family's flocks and at fourteen I
got my first sheep. I have continued to run and grown
my own small flock. During my time self employed I spent two lambing
seasons doing contract lambing. The first year I was
in Cumbria lambing 500 Texel x mule ewes inside.
The second year I was lambing on Rhynaclach Farm
which was a mix of indoor and outdoor lambing. This
was followed by hill lambing where I was working
independently for a local sheep stock club back home
in Skye. As well as lambing and gathering I was involved with
all other aspects of sheep work, dipping, dosing and
jagging, ringing and marking and shearing.
In a long term relationship.
