Here are some more sheep
pics that I took up at Alan's farm .... these are Alan's "boys" or "Tips" as
they call them.
And the dog is Sam she is
one of his sheepdogs .. she was standing the sheep off for me while I took
in the picture a Herdwick had just stamped at her and she was eyeing it up to
hold it there ... Hugs, jayne
They are all separated
ready for breeding. The white one with the black face is a Northumberland/
Scotch Black Face.
The grey coloured one is a Herdwick ..... the man in the pics is Alan!
