The Ouessant Society of Great Britain had their AGM recently and it has been decided to allow any unregistered Ouessant sheep currently in the U.K. to be accepted onto the Ouessant Society of Great Britain, registry subject to passing a veterinary and phenotypic examination.
Any animal that enters the Society’s registry through the Amnesty Scheme will carry the history of the route through which it attained registration - this will not dilute the integrity of the animals already on the Society’s registry.
Anyone intending to register their Ouessants must be paid up members; membership currently is £30 per annum and due on 1st January 2013 and every January thereafter.
The Society is currently putting together a simple form to be filled in by your own veterinarian, and will be available on request.
We hope that all of our members new and old will recognize the unique opportunity available to them and participate in the programme, we also hope that as a member and supporter of the Society and the Ouessant breed you will understand the reasons for an amnesty as well as the benefits to the membership, the Society and most importantly ‘The Ouessant Sheep’
PLEASE NOTE - ELIGIBILITY FOR REGISTRATION UNDER THE AMNESTY WILL RUN UNTIL MAY 1ST 2013. ANY APPLICATIONS AFTER THIS DATE WILL BE REJECTED. THIS AMNESTY WILL NOT BE REPEATED.
