Now that the Show season has come to a close I’m planning a new look for the website,
so this page won’t have any further updates until the New Year.

Sad News of Lightwater Linnet
Very sadly L.Linnet, who did so well at Carlisle, died 3 days after arriving at the McCornicks.
This was a very upsetting situation for us all. The cause is not certain although the vet thought
it might be digestive since she had no temperature. With hindsight it would have been better to have
a post mortem to try to determine the cause.
Inevitably I have been keeping a very close eye on my stock ever since.
Happily none have shown any unusual signs nor have any of the other stock sold by me at Carlisle.
I have replaced Linnet for the McCornicks with Lightwater Lulu who was sired by
Lightwater Jango (supreme c.r.at Carlisle RBSS 2008 and now with David Irvin in Dumfries).
Lulu was also the winning ewe lamb AOB at Masham Sheep Fair 2009.
Lulu’s transfer was very worrying but she seems to be doing well and
I hope she goes on to produce many good lambs for Caroline and the boys.
