Recently, Skipton has hosted a "Sheep Day" in the summer to celebrate all things sheep! This year we are hoping to help out on the RBST stand and we're also planning on taking some of our sheep to show members of the public. We haven't confirmed yet who we will be taking but we are hoping to take some! I shall confirm who we will be taking later on as we finalise details!
It is a fun filled day for all the family as the whole town is taken over by sheep to celebrate the town's Anglo Saxon name meaning "Sheep Town". Please come along to the RBST stand to say hello if you can!
What fun it would be to actually be there. Take lots of photos so we can enjoy it from a distance.
Here's the banner with all the info for the Sheep Day!

A few years ago this would have been my ideal day out but sad to say my ankle and lower back arthritis stop me walking far nowadays and train travel on a Sunday is horrendous. I love Skipton and I am sure the event will be a great success. Hope someone makes a video of the events. I really, really wish I could be there.
I'm hoping to be there,all being well !
We are pleased to announce that Boris, Wispa, Fiona, Fulvia and Peggy will be joining us at Skipton Sheep Day tomorrow (2nd July 2017) in Skipton! You will find us on the RBST stand just outside Boots on the High Street. The event runs from 10am to 4pm and is FREE! It promises to be a fun-filled day for all the family with all sorts of sheepy things going on, and it looks like the weather is going to be nice too! As well as the LambWatch sheep, you will also be able to see other breeds on the RBST stall so please do come and say hello if you can! Here are some pictures of our animals. Boris is a Boreray tup. Wispa is a North Ronaldsay tup. Fiona and Fulvia are Boreray ewes and Peggy is a Shetland ewe.
We've decided to leave Peggy at the farm as she is being bullied by the other two Boreray ewes.
Boris made it into the Yorkshire Post already! And look at Heather parading those rare breeds down the High Street like a pro!
Had a lovely time there ,nice to see everyone !
