Snapped on a rainy day on the Rapaki Track. That’s a rather impressive amount of fleece on this sheep. I also have to wonder if it’s about to drop some lambs? If so, it would be a bit late in the season.
Nice sheep, not sure what breed they are. Not that I am any kind of expert, but if I see anyone with their sheep I always have a chat about them. I was chatting to a guy who has some Ryeland sheep the other day and by chance I knew them because my mate photographed some at the and I used them on my Leeds DP as guest pics. The farmer I spoke with said the way the market is he would get 50 pence per fleece so he burnt them on principle.
Cute photo! I wonder how much wool could be cut to make yarn from that one sheep?!
I’m guessing there’d be enough for a couple of jerseys 🙂
I am looking for a sheep photo to put on the cover of my E book. Are your sheep photos for sale to be used this way or can I get permission to use one?
