Please remember to keep your dog under proper control (on a lead) when walking them in fields where sheep are grazing - farmers are reporting a number of lost lambs due to pregnant ewes being worried by dogs. Even normally well behaved dogs can react unpredictably when they see livestock. Farmers have rights when their animals are being put at risk which can include, in some circumstances, shooting the offending dog. See the article here on the law.
