    yeah, I wanted to do I.T however the option blocks didn't allow me to...

    So far i've done:
    2 weeks at our vets (i live on a farm so often get to see vets working - i've seen 2 caesareans (not a clue if that's spelt right :P) at home which was amazing!!)
    a weeks lambing
    a weeks milking

    and i'm hoping to go to:
    a chicken farm - laying hens
    riding centre
    more dairy work this summer which i'm looking forward too - especially the dairy as i love it!!

    i'm also in young farmers which has brought some amazing opportunities to me.. mainly through stockjudging which i hope will look good on my cv

    Oh wow, I'm insanely jealous that you live on a farm! What sort of farm is it?

    Your work experience looks great so far I'm going to a riding centre and dairy farm in the summer as well The nearest chicken farm was miles away from me, but I have my own hens and I volunteer on an urban farm where they have chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, fancy pigeons and guinea fowl, so hopefully that will count for something!

    It is a mixed arable and livestock farm, we have about 20 cows which produce beef cattle. we also have about 150 ewes and are hoping to increase them to about 200 by next year.

    Personally, i have a flock of badger face sheep which are insanely cute and are amazing! I also look after the tiddling lambs every year and I have 50 hens and sell the eggs for money towards University (my sheep are also my uni fund!! :P)

    It's amazing living on a farm and i wouldn't change it for the world!

    I bet it is! I would have loved to have grown up on a farm :moon: . My mother moved to London from the countryside, but my great aunt did the opposite and now she runs her own riding stable!

    What sort of cows are they? We have English longhorns and red poll cattle on the farm where I work. We have a couple of Friesians too, Shoeface and Sidehorn, who we use for milking demonstrations.

    Badger face sheep are adorable :love:

    mainly the cows are belgium blue cross which we put to a limousin bull for the beef breed however my brother have a pedigree hereford herd (a local breed) and we are putting half of the cows to his bull to breed some quiet heifers to put back to the limousin bull...

    they are so cute butvery good at escaping which doesn't make them very popular with my brother!

    I don't think I've ever seen any of those, I shall have to have a quick Google

    Oh, sheep are nutters when it comes to escaping. When we had lambs a couple of months ago they kept jumping the fence and running around. I lost count of the number of times frantic visitors would come up to me saying "Your lambs have escaped!" :lol:

    Haa, there's a saying "a sheeps main aim in life is to get out or die" if ours do both at the same time - it's a bonus to them :/

    I know, we live on the side of a main road but on a lane and our sheep always end up getting onto the main road which is quite busy but never the lane which is never used apart from residents!!

    Very true :lol:

    Our turkeys got onto the main road once! :eek: It's a straight section of road so people drive down there at high speed. Those turkeys were freaking suicidal I think :lol: I think the fox got them all in the end, though
