Early September 2012 we visited some Herdwick breeders in the Lakeland. We wanted to hear their story of what makes a good Herdwick. The director of the event and always ready for a challenge was Mayson Weir from Dowthwaite Head farm. In the first part Jean Wilson from Dockray ('The Queen of Herdwicks') is judging ewes, randomly chosen, at Liz & Bill McKinneys’ farm at Grizebeck. The second part is filmed at Ian Grisedale in Milton-Crooklands, giving comments on two of his own rams and a ewe.
