It hardly feels like a month since I last sat down at my computer to write for The Courier. It has past in a blur of activity around the farm and beyond. The highlight for myself was a trip last weekend to the stunning Isle of Lewis. This came about when I was invited to judge an open stock judging completion organised by the Lewis and Harris Sheep Producers Association. Their hospitality and kindness was overwhelming and that, along with the stunning scenery, will ensure a return visit in the near future.
