So much texture, and a great smile...
Alan: They are wonderful animals; very characterful.

I love the closer view, Alan...did she try to eat your lens hood?
Alan: Looks like I had my longest lens on the camera. I would not be able to get this close to her.
Ils sont adorables blottis ainsi.
Alan: Mum acts as a good windbreak for little lambie.

How could you resist taking them home, Alan, especially that lamb
Alan: If only I had a pasture where I could get a few pet sheep...

I have no doubt it'll be pouring with rain for you over those mist covered mountains and lakes all week

This is a sweet picture
Alan: Funnily enough, for once, you are right. It was a wet afternoon and now its not only wet but blowing a hoolie. It's going to be a wild night. I hope the sheep can get some shelter on the fells.

Oh, what a sweet image , Mummy looks weatherbeaten, but she will cope with the situation in the Lakes on the lonely fells. .
Alan: Presently, it is tipping down with rain and the wind is whistling through the trees; a wild night. I hope that the Mrs Sheep and all her friends can try to find some shelter from the weather. Tomorrow is not looking much better, either. Still it will be character-building fo us walkers smile Thanks, Philine.

Do they use the wool from Herdwicks?

I wonder if the lamb joints are tasty?

Are the hooves boiled down to make glue.

What would the fells be like without sheep grazing them?

Great image Alan
Alan: Yes.. for insulation, I believe.

Yes - very tasty and succulent.

Don't know.

They would be markedly different; much wilder and overgrown. I saw the fells after the terrible Foot and Mouth crisis and they looked so sparse until flocks of sheep came back.
She'd make a great sweater.
Alan: I don't think you would want her wool; it is very course and itchy. Merino is far better. Wool from Mrs Sheep is used in building insulation and some carpets.
This is a delightful shot Alan.
Alan: Thank you. They are very photogenic. (Presently, it is tipping down with rain and the wind is whistling through the trees; a wild night. Tomorrow is not looking much better, either. sad )
