Anyone raise Clun Forest sheep? I have Black Welsh Mountain now and I'm thinking about switching. The main trouble I have is that they're too small to harvest at 6 months, 18 months is ideal but I don't hay so I'd love a breed I don't have to over winter. The other issue with BWMS is that the rams have horns so electric netting is problematic. They have lovely qualities like good foragers, good mothers/birthers (haven't had to intervene yet), don't have to dock tails.

Any info is appreciated.
