retro2008 well the idea is that owners keep their dog on the lead if sheep are around, but sheep are not there all of the time you know. Dogs that worry sheep are allowed to be shot, should the farmer be around. Ciao nick

I really like this shot Nick, wonderful colours and an invitation to climb over the style and explore the rolling downs of Sussex. It looks like I'll have to borrow a dog from somewhere - otherwise my walk might be incomplete. But what about the sheep?

Greetings dear friend, Amelia

Nick Weall on February 6, 2009

Amelia Royan ~~ well there were sheep there Amelia to the left of shot on this side of the fence. They should have been Southdown sheep of course on the Sussex Downs and probably were. Anyway I'm very glad that you like the shot and Andrea in the comments above has a dog you could borrow for the day I would expect :))

Nick Weall on February 19, 2009

sadogashima, ~~~ I'll be up in Scotland at the end of next week so I'll keep an eye out. As to NZ with all of sheep there you'd think that some sort of thing like this gate would have been useful! Anyway glad you like the shot and pleased to meet you. cheers nick
