Lake Heron’s Woolly Jumpers

Pet sheep are always a feature of high country life.

This trio (known as the Woolly Jumpers) were hand reared a year ago. They are now the cheekiest sheep on the place and will follow Alex anywhere for a piece of bread. They have even been known to sneak into the house looking for food. They will be shorn soon and, no doubt, will be joined by a handful of new orphans when lambing starts in a few weeks time.
