Pictures of sheep in the Scottish countryside. Coloured Ryelands, being darker in colour and woollier than most sheep, are often referred to as “teddy bear sheep”. Because of this, people frequently comment on how cute our sheep are. Being our sheep, obviously we think they’re very sweet too.
Being a naturally friendly bunch and so “teddy bear like” in appearance, they’re very photogenic and it didn’t take long before my brother Matty (who happens to be an artist), started to sketch them when he came to visit.
Looking through Matty’s pictures one day, an idea formed in my head, I thought it would be lovely to be able to offer “cute sheep pictures” of our flock going about their business against the stunning backdrop of the Galloway Hills. After all, no home is complete without a sheep picture.
These are available from our shop.
With the warm, earthy colours of the sheep set against the backdrop of the Scottish countryside, these will cosy up your room and bring a flavour of rural Scotland to any room in your home. If you love farmhouse décor and rustic accessories these pictures give you a little piece of Scottish farm life without you even having to put your wellies on to enjoy it.
