This month’s sheep is shyly peeping out from behind a tree near Bassenthwaite Lake in Cumbria….
This month’s sheep is the delightfully pretty Herdwick – just back from a visit to the Lake District and finally managed to get some shots of them to add to my sheep collection.
This page is turning more into occasional sheep of the month!! But here is a sheep for June – a Portuguese Bordeleira. This is the rare breed sheep that we were using to make felt on my recent holiday and I can confirm that it makes beautiful felt – and has lovely natural colours too. Love the curly horns….!
Sheep of the month this month is a chicken – and a magnificent fellow he is too!
The New Year Sheep of the Month 2013
Whoops December Sheep a bit late
A New Title – 28th October
A new sheep every week is a bit of a challenge so instead I’ll try for one a month…..I’ve increased my store of sheep photos having just come back from Cumbria so I might just make one a month. This month a mysterious horned sheep glimpsed through the nettles near Portinscale….

Sheep of the Week 21 August
Sheep of the Week 31 July
This week’s photo is a saucy one from last year!! The sheep in the picture has a yellow back as a signal that it has been ‘tupped’ by the ram. The yellow raddle is applied by the farmerto the underside of the ram to ensure that it is doing its work with the ewes…..
Sheep of the Week 18 July
It is a good thing that we are going to the Lake District in a couple of weeks and then hopefully to the County Show at Hatfield House – I am running low on good sheep shots… so this week we have guest pigs instead (as I love pigs too!)
Sheep of the Week 10th July

Sheep of the Week 15 May
Not sure if this is the same Southdown that I wrongly identified recently as a North Ronaldsay – City Farm refers to them as ‘Teddy Bear Sheep’ as when they have their coat they are so fat and woolly….! Anyway I think they have great character…
Sheep of the Week 8 May
We met this sheep at last years Hertfordshire County Show at Hatfield House. Great eye patch!!

This week I’ve picked a Herdwick – such a pretty sheep native to Cumbria. Apparently its wool makes very good carpets…..
