Yorkshire sheep

Cycling in Yorkshire

I’m in Yorkshire, England, in The Dales area – me, plus bike, plus husband (who took photo of the two aforementioned). Great ride today, over hill over dale (valley).

Cycled past thousands of Swaledale sheep: in some cases farmers had separated mums on the one side of the road – left, of photo below – and their now-teenage lambs on the other.

The cacophony of noise they make has to be heard to be believed. It is more a MAAAA…. than a gentle Ba.

Got back to our temporary house to find, hanging on the wall, this rendering of Swaledales (below, right).
