The Lukyns Flock

The Lukyns flock was founded in 2003 by John & Sarah Dunsdon with the purchase of a group of ewe lambs from Mr Ticklers Kelby Flock which was established back in 1968 and being one of the oldest flocks.

The flock is managed on permanent grassland in the Surrey Hills in an Environmentally Sensitive Area by Sarah Dunsdon.

We decided to use rams from Mr Jim Dufosees Blackhill flock these were to be the backbone in generating the Lukyns ewe.

What kind of stock do we have?

We are regular exhibitors at a number of shows and are delighted that our stock have been winners in both the Poll Dorset and Mixed Classes.

In particular our outstanding ewes and ewe lambs have achieved first on a number of occasions in strongly well represented classes.

All our ewe replacements are home bred and we sell pedigree registered ewe lambs throughout the year, each supplied with an individual record card.
