Fergus, our new Herdwick tup

He has got such a wonderful face.  We bought him in late August from James Rebanks in Cumbria. 

12 year old Brownie could be your neighbour when staying in the shepherds hut.

J's cows in the Black Park

The Rock doves hang around waiting for us to feed the hens.  We stand around until the hens have finished feeding to try and stop them from stealing all the hen food.
