Is it any wonder that Welsh lamb is considered the best in the world when sheep are raised in a landscape like this?
At the beginning of April new born lambs herald the approach of fine weather in Wales. Wales is a country of small farms and sheep rearing is an age old tradition.
These shots were taken on farmland surrounding Penhow Castle in the county of Monmouthshire (Gwent), South Wales. In case you are interested we have a picture of the farmer's sheepdog here. These dogs are used on farms almost exclusively and have a reputation for high intelligence.
