52 in 2015 Week 24 Down On The Farm


Well in this case it was actually “up” in the farm as I took the photographs in the mountains of Snowdonia. Sheep farming is the main farming type here and all over the hills you will see sheep wandering and at this time of the year they will have their lambs still with them.

Of course there are some boundaries where the sheep aren’t allowed to roam and in most cases there are dry stone walls. Nowadays there is a tendency to put wire fences in and these farmers were preparing to move some posts further round the side of the mountain.

That’s it. I hope you enjoyed the photographs, as usual feel free to comment, say you like the photographs, or ask a question.

    Mike, the terrain is looks very rugged and the sheep plus the farmers sure get their exercise. The post looks huge and would probably keep an elephant fenced but I stretching that a bit. So where are the photos of the Border Collies?

    I don’t have any Yvonne. They only use the collies when they are rounding up sheep. Most of the time the sheep stay on the hills.
