We are spending a week in the Yorkshire Dales.  Today we went to a livestock auction.


  1. Very interesting photo. I have checked it out from top to bottom. I love the man at the front of the picture wearing the hat and could not help but notice that there is no women up front. I guess buying livestock is a man's business. How much do they sell for? Really ingenious photo for Rustic.

    1. It is indeed a man's world!
      The lambs are generally 35 to 40 kilos, some 50. They are sold in a range of £60 to £90 depending on size and breed.

  2. I agree with Janet! Really an amazing representation for rustic. "Having to do with the countryside..."
    Visiting the Yorkshire dales is on my Wish List.
