SATURDAY'S CRITTERS - Sheep at Ardress House (Part 1)

Over the past few days I have shown you photographs I took at The Argory and there are lots more of them to come, however we also visited another nearby National Trust property after lunch on the same day and that was Ardress House.  Apart from the house and grounds, there also is a farm and I am showing the sheep they had there today.  Unfortunately they were all at the other side of the field so I had to crop these shots.  







I am linking with SATURDAY CRITTERS.

Many thanks for visiting and also to all who leave comments.

  1. Very different to the sheep we see here. If you hadn't told us, I would have been thinking goats...

  5. Hello, Margaret! They do look different, like the big horn sheep seen in our western national parks. Great collection of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  7. So different than the sheep we have here (Mississippi, USA)

  8. Very interesting post. I've never seen sheep like these. They do resemble the Bighorn Sheep that we have here, but those aren't generally raised domestically.

  10. Those rams have some impressive horns. The wool would make great looking sweaters. Like the symmetry in your last photo.

  11. I wonder what breed they are? Their horns are fab and that's a great shot of one standing up the wall to nibble the leaves!

  15. I guess these are what we call Long Horned Sheep. They DO look a bit un-sheepish!
