Breed Description
The Swaledale was probably my favorite breed to research and it pains me to retire the breed, but sadly it is not what the market wants now. A price is required for the item to appear, so I put 1. Please do not order this, it is not available.

The Swaledale can be found in the northern counties of England on the Pennine mountains and is an official symbol of the Yorkshire Dales. If you were a follower of the James Herriot series, the Swaledale populated the fields. Iif you drive through the dales today, especially in the northern wide open areas, they roam freely and need to be avoided on the roads. It is a close relative to the Scottish Blackface and Rough Fell breeds and, like them, is a very hardy mountain breed, though the smallest of the three.
