Help save rare breeds

We have been contacted by Stephen at Saving Rare Breeds asking if we have any information that they can use on their website for education. I see from the site that Shetland sheep are listed, and these sheep are definitely worth saving! Have a look at http://www.savingrarebreeds.org.uk and read on for Stephen's email explaining what he is doing.

"I am working on an animal sponsorship programme aimed at schools. They will have access to a secure page for their sponsored animal that will include photos etc. I want this to be as educational as possible so would like to add detailed fact sheets and video if possible of all things that relate to their selected animal. I.e History of where they originated, use of fleece, spinning, weaving, etc."
