Artist's Description

The sheep of the English Lake District. A Herdwick high on the fells above Langstrath (the valley) being admired by its friend.The darker colouring of the background sheep tells me it is younger than the main subject.Herdwicks start off almost black with white faces and turn grey by the 3rd year,so I am reliably informed.
These hardy sheep live their lives on the fells,becoming “hefted” to a particular fell,and passing on their knowledge of their home territory to their lambs.Thus they have no need of fences,for they will not stray.In 2001 Cumbria was very badly hit by foot and mouth disease but no-one told the fell sheep and it seems to have passed them by…
