Broomstick Marriages


There is one piece of veterinary information concerning broom. Aubrey noted its use in Hampshire and Wiltshire to prevent rot in sheep (Aubrey. 1847). He knew of "careful husbandmen" who cleared their land of broom, "and afterwards their sheep died of the rott, from which they were free before the broom was cutt down". So then they made sure of leaving some plants of it round the edges of their land, just for the sheep to browse on, "to keep them sound".
