Somerset tradition

I WAS bemused, to put it mildly, when I read about the farmer who threw the dead sheep into the crowd that was watching a firework display in Weare. I was even more bemused to read that the head of the school, in order to calm the foreign visitors down, tried to pass it off as a Somerset tradition. So now we have foreigners, who, instead of thinking that Somerset has one mad farmer who goes around throwing dead sheep at people, now thinks that the county is overrun with them. When I am on holiday I will tell anyone who asks that I come from Norfolk. The accent is similar enough to get away with I reckon.KAREN TAYLOR - Abbots Close, Weston
