With lots of 2017 season lambs now on the ground anticipation is beginning for the coming season. A very important part of the Hampshire Down Calendar is attendance at the National Sheep Association Sheep Events throughout the country. If you've never been to one, check out your nearest event and go along - it really is a fascinating day out no matter how great or small your knowledge of sheep is. Even better, volunteer to do a stint and help out on the Hampshire Down Stand. The Stands are all booked now, and we can confirm we will be attending: WELSHSHEEP 16th May, Brecon; HIGHLANDSHEEP 31st May, Ross-shire; NORTHSHEEP 7th June, Co Durham; SHEEPSOUTHWEST 20th June, Devon and SHEEPNORTHERNIRLELAND 3rd July Ballymena. - See You There!
