A site about a West Yorkshire flock of Jacob Sheep

Snowy Sheep

Leave a comment

We got back from our holiday and running adventures (see my running blog if interested) a couple of weeks ago and the day after we got back there was a flurry of snow. I took some snowy sheep pictures and have been meaning to share some here. The flock looks somehow different, woolier maybe and happy in the snow:

Doesn’t the sky look moody? All of the sheep were glad of some food – partly I do think they were hungry but also I think they wanted something to do and nibble on. All were pleased to see some hay. I love the views across the valley – the ewe lambs don’t seem to notice it though.


The ram lambs were less keen on the white cold stuff and instead made camp underneath the hedge that runs along the edge of their field – lucky for them the feeding trough was there too.


Brough seemed to be enjoying the snow – maybe knowing that he looks good against the white or maybe knowing that ewe number 12 was just standing in the gateway watching him. I suspect she was just shaking her head at him, she’s seen it all before, but he seemed to like the attention.
