Expectant Mum

Expectant Mum. This is another shot of the rare breed Soay sheep at Elysium Farm near Holmfirth, they love visitors so if you’re interested, find them on FB. This year the expectant ewes have been moved into a barn so that it’s easier to assist the ewes or lambs during birthing, if required.

      Thank you and thanks for sharing. It was the way the light was coming through the window, I took a few pictures but this was the one that I liked the best with the ewe in that position.

      Thank you. I agree about the lighting, the barn was very dark and the only light was the window and although I have my flash, I opted not to use it. I have some more pictures taken here with the same feel which I may upload.

    Nice shot. Love these sheep after seeing them wild on St. Kilda a few years ago - they are so tough!

      Sorry I'm a little late with my reply. I'm not sure of the exact history but I think the Vikings are thought to have left the sheep in St Kilda? The farm is not so far from York if you wanted to visit, find them on Facebook.
