photoblog image Sheep Saturday

Sheep Saturday

Some more lambs from near Bakewell back in March this year. I assume that mum was the 25th to have been berth during the season.

 

----------

Some of you may remember that on our 2014 Boys' Weekend, we were invited to take part in sheep judging competition. The owners of the cottage that we had rented were sheep farmers and breeding the Swaledale sheep, the local breed. I leant earlier this week that they have sold one of their rams for £9500, a near record for the breed.

You are a curiosity, Alan...Mum is telling her babies a cautionary tale about the "wolves in Lycra".

I'm not surprised at what you say about the prize ram, just think how many little pedigree lambs he is likely to sire..

I wonder that the right lamb doesn't have the mark 25. Mummy looks a bit exhausted after giving birth (!) - a very cute scene. Probably the successful ram is the Pappi of the lambs.
No wonder lamb is so expensive!

'to sire' is a very noble word! Thanks to Chris who writes the best English IMHO.
