I can see from v5 that this farmer still puts bands on their tails when they are born - eventually the tail will drop off. Its an old fashioned practise to avoid the tails getting infested with maggots. Not seen so much these days
v4 is a very endearing capture SmileSmile

That's an interesting comment from Helen......I did not know banding of their tails was practises or why.
I feel these are the best sheep and lamb shots you have posted so far, Ed, and for me V 1 takes a lot of beating.

I agree with Ronnie above and think this your best set yet, superb work Ed and as you so rightly say they are not as easy to get as one might think - love them all but particularly the white one with the black patches on his face - well doneSmile

I think I like this set the most, Ed, because the inclusion of the adult with the young makes for a much nicer composition, and gives the family-group feeling to them, which is very pleasing. V5 is just beautiful, and V7 rates high on the cute factor, too.
