Sheep country


The Yorkshire Dales are very much 'owned' by sheep. The public footpaths cross the green and (sometimes) steep pastures. This flock watched us warily when we passed.


Here we were approaching a farm. Both these pictures were taken in the Wensleydale. Years ago the episodes of  the television series "All Creatures Great and Small", about the life of country vet James Herriot, were filmed in this region. I have been a fan of the series as well as the books for many years, and I really loved it here.

  5. These sheep have right side legs shorter than left side ones, so that they can be on the slopes :D
    Wonderful landscape.

  6. Ah, the James Herriotcountry. Ik heb zo genoten van die serie. Mooie foto's het landschap lijkt zo leeg.Dat vind ik zo bijzonder in andere landen. Hier staat altijd wel een elektriciteitsmast of een windmolen in de weg.
