    So this is not really "wildlife" as such, but a sheep seen on the moorland fields just beside Haworth Bronte Parsonage. I've never seen a sheep like this and wanted to try and find out what species it is, and internet searches do not really shed much light. Can anyone help me?DSCF6989.JPG

      So sorry my friend, but I don't know. I can relate to Biblical revelations of sheep and mankind, shepherds etc, views that I take seriously. Apart from that. Sheep> lamb joint, mint suace etc. Sorry.

          There are so many crosses and the crosses crossed again with farm animals now so it may be hard to tell, the farmer should know unless the sheep have been seeing the neighbours :th scifD36:;)
          @SimonZ
          Could be Suffork cross Lleynn

          @shiney

          Could be Kerry hill

                  T'other Half says SimonZ's is a Star Trek sheep and Shiney's are of Panda origin. I agree. :heehee:
