Il a un joli masque !

What a face. It looks like it has a sense of humour!
Lisl: It does - I can imagine a smile developing
What interesting markings - just that stripe down the face, and a brown body... Nice shot!

"Zwartbles sheep are a large breed of domestic sheep. This breed first came from Holland in the north of the Netherlands. They were used to make sheep milk as well as lamb and mutton. They were often kept in the same fields as the dairy cattle.

They were brought over to Great Britain in the late 1900s. They are not very common and now live in the north of England. The sheep have reddish brown wool, black legs with four white socks, a white tip on the tail, and a black face with a white stripe. They do not have horns. The lambs look the same but have jet black wool. These are a tame and friendly sheep, but are difficult to look after."
My sheep today might be of the same breed.
Lisl: Thank you, Philine. This picture was taken in the Cotswolds
Handsome critter, Lisl.
Lisl: Indeed, Mary
I like the white stripe up the middle of its face.
Lisl: Very handsome
the wool looks rather dense around the neck, Lisl
Lisl: I think it is a northern species, Ayush, and need its thick covering
