Flock of sheep near Nether Sturston
Flock of sheep near Nether Sturston
Identified as Torddu badger face sheep, by a fellow Geographer.
The Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep Society web page describes them :-

All across England & Wales (and now in parts of Ireland, France and Belgium) reports of 200% live lambs are common place. The breed is ideal for small and commercial flocks where the management ranges from "part of the family" to "vacuum cleaners" following dairy cows or grazing the hill where other breeds would not survive. The medium sized ewe weighing 40-60kg allows a higher stocking rate than larger breeds; this combined with a good lamb crop and low concentrate requirement gives more lambs per hectare producing a good cash return. Even when crossed with bigger terminal sires the lamb birth weight of 3 5kg results in very few problems.
