Herdwick Men

By the beginning of winter, the rams develop a very shaggy coat.

Herdwick rams

These fellows hale from Wythburn valley (a little north of Grasmere), which is characterized by having lots of shade and the most comprehensive bogs. Any walk up Wythburn will quickly determine the quality of your boots' waterproofing.
