The Belties are back!

The Belties are Back!

It’s good to see the Belted Galloways have returned to their Winter feeding grounds.  They’ve been further down the dale, toward Ingleton, for most of the Autumn but we can now watch them from the kitchen window, grazing their way across the rough pasture on Southerscales.

They are such tough, sturdy creatures with their rough curly coats and distinctive band of white across a predominately black body. Some days they make their way high up, over the limestone scars but it doesn’t matter how far away they wander, when the farmer calls them there is always a tremendous stampede for food. They are surprisingly nimble and quick and it’s quite funny watching them hurtle down the slopes, regardless of terrain.
