The Haydan Flock of Border Leicesters was started in 2017 with the purchase of two Alticane ewe lambs from Carlisle; from there Dan was helped with stock from Summerfield, Millend and Valleyview flocks, and with semen from Jim Brown’s Eildon rams. These purchases and generous gifts have allowed Dan to rapidly achieve a strong and impressive group of Border Leicester sheep. Homebred stock is now winning in the show ring with many firsts and even several Interbreed Champions.


2020 saw his sheep at three outings where he had Champion Border Leicester at all three including the Great Yorkshire and Stafford County Show.


Haydan Zwartbles have been a part of the beech Hay flock for many years, but it wasn’t until 2017 that Dan decided that he would like his own prefix. Beech Hay Barrister, many times champion and National Champion, was a grandson of Dans first pet lamb Beech Hay Sunflower. Her daughter Beech Hay Willo the Wisp would come looking for Dan every morning as they rode through the stock.

Many people have asked to buy Barry (Barrister), but Dan has resolutely held on to him out of loyalty and knowing he produces great stock for him and the Haydan Flock.
