Philip and Hilary Thornely are an academic couple and it goes without saying that they apply academic principles to their sheep keeping. Meticulous records have been kept for the past 30+ years allowing them to breed for desirable traits of prolificacy, worm resistance, comparision of different terminal sires and the performance of the Llanwenog vs the Lleyn.
Philip Hodges has been breeding, actively promoting and showing Llanwenogs since the 70s with considerable success. He is an avid supporter of traditional breeds and a well respected judge making him much in demand up and down the country in the show rings. A visit to the award winning Charndon flock is a treat not to be missed.
