Meet the only flock of Red Fox Sheep in the UK

The Lake District is famous for its hardy Herdwick Sheep, but a rather unusual German breed is also doing rather well in a quiet corner of the National Park.

Farmer Mayson Weir is currently breeding them successfully at Dowthwaite Head Farm in the North Lakes. He has 20 ewes, eight sets of twins, one set of triplets, and nine single lambs.
