Stuart was born and raised on a small Scottish farm where they had two small residences – Lambdoughty Farm and Craigmalloch farm.
The farm ran a small flock of about 2400 head of Scottish Blackface sheep. The Blackface wool makes the best Harris tweed and Axminster carpets.
Space Coast State Fair 2012 layout Stuart moved to the U.S ten years ago and began Sheep herding once again about four and a half years ago
Stuart met Lucia Skipwith Lilien about 2 years ago and one of their first dates was whelping a litter of puppies, two of whom they have and train now – Dairsie and Hailes.
They now have a small flock of Scottish Blackface sheep on a small farm and train their five Border Collies Rock, Keene, Dairsie, Hailes and Tyne to work stock and compete in herding competitions across the United States.
Stuart makes shepherds crooks from sheep horn and recently was approached by a film maker about the possibility of making a documentary about crook making as it is such a dying art.
Lucia has proved to be a natural at caring for the stock and learning the art of herding.
Her medical background and her intense love of the animals empowers her greatly, making her a very devoted farm partner.
Stuart and Lucia deliver lambs together during lambing season and make sure the flock and the dogs remain not only healthy, but in superior health.
It is a full time job, as anyone can tell you that has been around livestock. An experienced public speaker, Lucia brings a demonstration to life with her dialogue.
