If you are visiting this blog it might be because you are familiar with our Cheviot’s from Cheviot Instagram page or you have visited our website. First of all, thank you for taking time to have a look at our new blog.
Let me tell you the reason for starting this blog. As well as run a website and an Instagram page I got the idea of running a blog of our life with our sheep and dogs as I love writing and posting about our livelihood. Our livelihood that we work so hard for and will continue to for the rest of our life. I love it, I get a kick out of how many people have supported us so far and the responses we get on our posts! It really fuels my inspiration and motivation, so thank you.
Anyways, I am the one behind the screen and camera for our website and the Instagram page and now this new blog. I document and talk about everyday life with our sheep through lambing time, shearing time, showtime, feeding time as well talk about our most loyal companions – our dogs. We have 3 lovely Collies and 2 mad Springadors – queue soppy dog photos.
So with all that, here is a little about myself and the handsome guy you see on the Instagram. My name is Lucy and my boyfriend James is the hard working Shepherd you see in the photographs. We both live near the Cheviot Hills in North Northumberland, fitting as we farm Cheviot Sheep so close to the spectacular hills. We are both in our early 20’s with 5 dogs and a flock of sheep trying to make our native flock into something bigger.
We met in 2007 while we lived in a very remote part of Northumberland and became best friends for 7 years before we became a thing!! With our love for the countryside, farming and biodiversity, we make a great team in working together and making the most out of our flock of sheep. Head over to our website for more information on how we live and work with our sheep. And we hope you continue to support our blog! X
