Shepherding Tools and Customs - No.23 - Shire Publication
Shire Publications Ltd, Tring, Herts, 1977. ### Shepherding Tools and Customs - No.23 - Shire Publication ### ~#~ Shire Publications are a great series of books that over the years have grown from 32 pages a book. These books offer such a wealth of information, social history and local history and pastimes will be forgotten if these and other books are no longer available. Always well-written and researched, and this one is no exception, from the front page to the last lots of photos and drawings to inspire and use as a reference book. ~#~ The tools of the time for all sorts of situations that sheep can get upto and into, crooks to catch them, so many different styles an varied from county to county. Then there is old faithful the Welsh or Border collie by the side of the shepherd or chasing, gone astray sheep or lambs, fascinating look back in history. Here in Hampshire, sheep were everywhere. the sheep gave a shepherd a job, the sheep eat the grass, manured the grass, gave wool for clothes and meat for the table, so a multipurpose animal. Great read and highly recommended. 32 p. - INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ?
