Jacob Sheep

Thursday, August 12th 2010

Our friendly farmer, Keith, brought back the five Jacob sheep which went to be strimmed (sheared!) just over two weeks ago. As well as the Jacobs he brought us twelve Swaledales as well!

You can see them here getting stuck in to eating our grass and rush. Hopefully they will stay with us for the next few weeks and so help to manage the wetland sward.

Thanks Keith!
