Tribute to Pat Swinley
Many people are remembered for their personal achievements – famous sports people or celebrities to name but a few. However, those that are most fondly remembered, tend to have focussed their attentions on those around them and the lasting impact they have left behind.
Following the sad announcement of the death of Patricia (Pat) Swinley of the Peglars Flock of Dorset Horns, based near the village of Flaxley in Gloucestershire it has become abundantly clear how massive her impact has been on many people but especially young people with an interest in Dorset sheep.
Pat founded her pedigree flock of Dorset Horns in 1975 and over almost 50 years she attended many local shows where she competed strongly in the ring, enjoying the company of those across the farming community.
