Following a complaint about the small size of the ewe and lamb in my avatar, I've added the full size pic here. The lamb is just a few days old, and was the first ewe lamb born to my flock of rare breed longwool Wensleydale sheep in 2014.
The Wensleydale is a large, tall breed with stunning and unique looks as well as outstanding performance. Their fleece is very highly prized for its length, fineness and shimmering lustre, and is usually one of the highest priced wools in UK. Lambs are slim and long limbed, which makes for easy lambing even for first time lambers and small ewes, but they are lively youngsters who quickly thrive and grow into confident, friendly lambs. I can't claim to have tasted the meat, but understand it is tasty and low in fat.
