Whats Happening on the Farm at Pry House

Its Tupping time on the farm and on15th November the tups (rams) have been put to the female sheep.  As our flock are pedigree Swaledales this means Chris has to select which sheep he thinks will suit each tup.  Each tup can serve between 50 - 80 ewes.  Lucky them!  Tupping goes on until the end of the year by which time all the sheep should be in lamb.
