Sales are over, and things are a little quieter in Stonesdale. Here are two of our acquisitions – excellent tups (rams) who will bring vigour to our flock.
On September 2 we were at Muker Show, a traditional agricultural show in a nearby village. It’s one of our favourite shows, and we were very pleased that this lovely lamb – pictured here with Brian – won its class!
It’s lambing time again for the farms in West Stonesdale. Our fine Swaledale sheep lamb later than most parts of the country because they spend their lives on the moors and we want to make sure that they have the best chance of raising strong, healthy lambs.
A yow and her lamb
The first few lambs are around in the pastures and barns, and if you visit in the next couple of weeks you’ll see some busy farmers and lots of beautiful bouncing lambs.
This is a Swaledale Tup Lamb from the B Thornborrow flock – you’ll see lots of them on your visit!
