The Year of the Sheep

The Year of the Sheep in the Chinese Lunar New Year starts today
Wuon-Gean Ho, a British Chinese artist and printmaker was commissioned by the Royal Mint to design their commemorative coin and out of the dozens of breeds of sheep, worldwide, she chose the Swaledale.  We are honoured and proud. 
To celebrate the Year of the Sheep here are some images of our Swaledales

Lambs on't wall!
Tup Shearing
Sheep on't road!

Some have a trickier start to life than others.
Grazing in unison at Wain Wath.
Foddering on the moor
 Taking an afternoon rest in the sunshine!
