More UK trip photos

A cozy English pub
Garrett and Jenny heading back
You can see she truly loves her sheep.

Jenny thought we might enjoy a break from endless sheep viewing and took us to visit a really nice Cashmere goat operation.  Forgive me for not remembering the name of the lady that owned the goats.  She welcomed us to her beautiful farm and gave us a little tour of her barn and pastures.  Check out the horns on that buck!!! 

Here are a couple younger goats doing what goats 

Here is a really nice shot of the goats in her pasture. 

Her pasture was so beautiful, I just adore the rock formations all around her farm

Don't you just love the head and horn structure on this boy? 

Mike saying hi to one of Jenny's friendly sheep.  I'm sure he was quite sick of seeing sheep by this point in our trip.  Such a good sport about it all.

Fleece shot of one of her sheep.  Very nice.

One of her young rams

Sheep grazing on the fell
We actually did go into Ulverston and visit a trendy little tea shop, had some lunch, bought me some wool socks (I was cold, wet and freezing) and then stopped at a little pub down the road from Jenny & Chris's house to have a couple pints.  They even had the old style taps that you "pull" beer up from the basement with, a true muscle building activity for the female bartender.  Chris had a nice stew for us to eat in the evening and we sat around the fireplace and talked......about sheep of coarse.
