Getting the best of you.

One of my favorite twitterers is @herdyshepherd1 (Herdwick Shepherd) who mostly tweets photos of his sheep and the land on which they roam in the Lake District of England. The Atlantic had a piece about him and his somewhat surprising popularity not too long ago if you want to learn more about him. I highly suggest following him if you're interested in sheep, beautiful landscapes or the survival of small family farms.


Today I want to share this fascinating series of tweets about the practice of raddling. It's like those apocryphal rainbow parties parents were terrified of a few years ago, but for sheep.

(A "tup," by the way is the local word for a male sheep.)


Get it on, tups!
