To the Editor of the New Zealand Country Journal.
Sir,—In your issue of January appeared an excellent article, by Mr. Ford, upon the different breeds of sheep. In common with many others, I perused it with much interest, and was very much struck with his account of the "Improved Dartmoor" sheep. Would you kindly inform me in your columns whether any of these sheep are procurable in these colonies; if so, where? If they have been imported, whether they have proved a success; and whether they have been bred sufficiently long enough to reproduce themselves; are they, in fact, pure-bred sheep ? Such a sheep as Mr. Ford describes is just the sheep we want on hilly country; and, with a view to eliciting more information on the subject, I trouble you with these enquiries.
I am, &c.,
June 9, 1877.P.S.—Would you kindly inform me what is Mr. Ford's address.
