And if you moor underneath a tree, the dripping onto the roof will keep you awake in your bed. Which in turn leads to a certain degree of insanity. Hence today’s photos will be celebrating sheep. (Loosely connected to our current mooring at Nether Heyford, which has a particularly good independent butchers selling spring lamb.)
I can’t help but get excited when I see sheep. Because without them what would I knit and spin with. So many different breeds across the UK. The first three photos were of sheep I’ve seen in the last few days here in Northamptonshire.
I’m not 100% sure but I think these are Blue Faced Leicester cross.
These look like Romney.
The next three photos were taken a few weeks ago around mum’s village in the Lake District
This one is a Cheviot
And my favourite the Herdwick.
With any luck the rain will ease off and we can get back to cruising again. At least the snow we were forecast today hasn’t happened, yet.
Happy Easter everyone and if you are a first time holiday boater, please believe me when I say usually it’s a lot lot lot more fun than this.
