    This is a suggestion by Primroselane and I think its a great one. This sticky will anchor with links posts like the breed of the month, the wool processor list (currently a sticky) and if you want to add a directory listing for your self, refering to your sheep interest be it sales of breeding stock, or sheep supplies, wool sales, knitting lessons or just as a private contact listing feel free to add it on. I'll go through every so often and categorize the listing replacing your reply with a link (or pm me and I'll do it right away) . As always your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    great idea, are you planning on only going a year at a time, or add the years as the number of different breeds goes over 12?

    If there is enough interest in the breed of the month I'll keep it going if it isn't generating much discusion I may drop it. Easy enough to edit the directory with a year date.

    Ross - I'm confused. If I would like make a comment on an older breed of the month thread, how would I do it?
    I'd like to know more about the Soays. I wasn't online much that month. Should I just make a new thread?

    You may do either! The breeds of the month are just unstuck not locked, feel free to add on, they'll bump back to the top!

    a request for Border Leicester to be the breed of the month in April. (As April 6th is National Tartan Day!) Or, I suppose Scottish Blackface, in that case, make BL's March or May, please. -thank you

    Hello Ross,
    I hope this is how you wanted this posted...
    I would like to add my farm to the directory. We sell Cotswold and Blue Faced Leicester x merino/salish breeding stock as well as fleece, rovings, and handmade items.
    www.windridgefiberfarm.com
    Thanks!!

    I see Bergere has listed this Rocky Sheep Covers guy, but I just want to add my 2 cents!

    Based on my friend Wendles recommendation, I ordered enough to cover my entire flock of Border Leicester's and WOW am I ever happy with them! They really are much better than the Matilda brand, (which I had first) http://www.rockysheep.com/sheepcover/index.html And, ...He's a nice guy to do business with, (sometimes hard to find these days)

    This stickie always annoyed me because it seemed misnamed. How about a sticky with a directory of the sheepish folks on HT? with name, location, breeds, etc?
