Spotted near Coniston.

You will have heard, of course, of blackface sheep, well these are blackarse sheep, a truly rare breed.

Those were my first thoughts but then noticed the patches were of a material “sewn” onto the fleece.

Ah, must be a sheep’s chastity belt. Hasn’t stopped the tups trying.

A farmer fellow confirmed my thoughts. Apparently, these will have been born this year so are still classed as lambs.
