A farmer from Co. Roscommon has taken to Facebook in a bid to try and locate her missing Herdwick sheep, have you seen them?

Monika Vanourek is a farmer from Ballinameen in Co. Roscommon and the Manager of Happy Goat Farm and Brilliantstorm Kennel.

The farmer, who recently featured on That’sFarming for a miracle goat birth - see here - has taken to Facebook in search of her missing sheep. There are three sheep in total missing from the farm which produces goat’s cheese, all Purebred Herdwick Ewes. They were taken two weeks ago whilst Monika was out of the country.

“They went missing two weeks ago.” Monika told That’sFarming.

“I was in the Czech Republic and my husband stayed at home with the kids. He went walking with the sheepdog (looking for the sheep), but (found) nothing” she continued.

The farmer has also been searching for the missing ewes every day since her return, but to no avail.

"I have been walking every day looking for them and still nothing.”

Monika issued a plea to the public via Facebook for help in tracing their whereabouts. She has urged anyone with any information to contact her on 089-2139697.
