The Vault Flock was started in 2004 when we visited Cotswold Farm Park, the home of rare breeds. This is where we initially purchased 3 ewe lambs.
These three Hebrideans were purchased as pets and used as lawnmowers when we lived on the Malverns.
We then decided to try and breed with them the following year. Through the Hebridean Sheep Society we found other local members. In November 2005 a proven ram Rye End Sebastian arrived on loan from local breeders Neil and Katie Anderson. This was the ram that started our "Vault" flock.
In 2021 we again used our prize winning ram Sycamore Inverlochy for tupping. We held back some of his lambs born in 2022 for breeding and they ran with our new ram Cinderhill Titus.
The numbers have fluctuated over the years and now for winter 2023 we have split the flock for tupping between Titus and Pengrove Crivens. All our sheep are born, reared and grazed on our traditional pastures.
