Herdwick Sheep are the Lake Districts native breed and Angela has certainly captured the boys looking smart in  their Sunday best! 

This is a really colourful picture of a group of Herdwick rams (or Tups as they're called) photographed in Thirlmere with the sun reflected off the snow which highlights their thick wool coats

A great way to make someone smile on any occasion, send a card today and cheer someone up.

The name "Herdwick" is derived from the Old Norse herdvyck, meaning sheep pasture. Though low in lambing capacity and perceived wool quality when compared to more common commercial breeds, Herdwicks are prized for their robust health, their ability to live solely on forage, and their tendency to be territorial and not to stray over the difficult upland terrain of the Lake District. It is considered that up to 99% of all Herdwick sheep are commercially farmed in the central and western Lake District.
