A good basic starter book, but not a bible
on 30 May 2009
I bought this book 18 months ago as an absolute beginner sheep-owner, and on the whole, it has been pretty useful. This is chiefly because it is small and therefore not daunting to tackle, and providing concise explanations of techniques and some disesases. But by its nature, it can't be comrehensive, and I have found various internet sites more useful for diagnosing illness, when a friendly farmer or vet has not been around to advise. I also found that some of the advice was a little biased. This is a useful little book, but it can't be your only source of information.
