The Tups in the field next to our cottage

We’ve got five Tups belonging to our neighbour in the field next to the farm yard. They are a bit of a mix of Suffolk, Texel etc, but my favorite is the Blue faced Leicester on the left. IMG_7632


This photo shows his roman nose off nicely.

This summer, we’ve been collecting Blue faced Leicester wool from around the Yorkshire Dales, stretching across to Bowes in County Durham.  The wool from this tup is the only Lake District fleece we have got hold of so far, although I am trying to persuade my neighbour to breed more.
