Herdwick sheep are native to the Lake District in Cumbria. Beatrix Potter is known to have helped bring the breed out from its threatened status by buying up fell farms and carefully breeding the sheep.
It was James Rebanks who taught the world of life as a shepherd in the fells through his book (Herdwick Shephard) and twitter account (herdyshepherd1)

  1. Since I'm a knitter, I appreciate a lot the postcard featuring sheep breeds. This is a beautiful picture!
