The theft occurred sometime between April 26 and May 2, although it is believed they were taken overnight on April 27, as the sheep were making a lot of noise at that time.

Twenty-one Texel-cross-ewes were stolen with lambs. The ewes have an orange flock mark on the left side, behind the ribs, and the lambs are number marked in blue/red.

Anyone with details, call 101 ref 696 020518.
