We inevitably occasionally get some escapees entering Lofftwen, most often from our own neighbouring Geufron where we have let the grazing rights to a local farmer who is always very good at rounding them up as quickly as we spot them. Away from the herd, the personality of these animals seem to come to the fore. The three pictured here - a ewe, yearling and her lamb - were particularly intriguing, always on the look out for each other and the yearling so attentive to her new offspring. I now have much more respect for the humble sheep as a result of observing their behaviour for an hour or so before I left them to their own devices (and rang our friendly farmer to come and round them up before they started eating our saplings!).
