Herdwick Invasion

One of the Lakes GoHerdwick sheep

There’s a new breed of sheep in town. The Herdwicks. Or rather the #GoHerdwick’s. To raise money for a local charity, 60 sheep have been painted up by artists and placed around the English Lake District. Many of them have come indoors into local hotels and shops and you do wonder what the new members of the hardiest breed in the world make of their new location.    

Standing out from the herd

Hardy Herdwick flock.
Six pretty painted frocks
desert fells for shops.
