Abbot's Lodge Sheep Transportation
Abbot's Lodge Sheep Transportation
Picture taken at Thornton Abbey of sheep being transported to the shearing pens. There are two decks to the trailer and the Shepherd told me he carries 35 going but 45 coming back (minus fleece). Apparently Abbot's Lodge farm has a total flock of 600 head. I wonder how many the Augustinians who founded the Abbey in 1148 owned.
