A new Best Friend
On a walk in the glorious West Sussex countryside on Good Friday, I was surprised to find a flock of Herdwick sheep and their lambs. They are more used to the craggy fells of Cumbria than the bucolic sharks of southern England. Most of flock seemed to think I as the man from the local abattoir and ran off but this one seemed very happy to have her muzzle rubbed.

You do have a thing with sheep Alan, Are they attracted to you or is it you who is attracted to them, either way they always seem happy to pose for you.
The detail in this is excellent, as are the colours, and the eye contact and happy pose make this another fine image to add to your sheep collection.

You certainly do have an affinity with animals Alan and not just sheep, they must trust you.
Another pin sharp study, pity she did not brush the dried grass out of her coat before having her photo taken though.

Are you a shepherd Alan? You always have the sheep with you wherever you go Another pin sharp shot of the sheep & what a lovely face she has & you have captured the eyes perfectly. Well taken.

Up the valleys in South Wales the sheep know its best to run so we don't have the opportunity to take fantastic shots like this, love the fine detail very well captured
