Sheep in wolves' clothing?

Which end is which?
I'm going to guess at North of England Mules .
The two sheep in the foreground are Valais Blackface, originally from the Upper Valais region of Switzerland. The standing sheep in the background is a Suffolk, an old English breed. I do not know what breed the fourth sheep is.
Look like Lincoln Longwool sheep, We had a ride out yesterday and came back home through Great Altscar and Aughton and there was a field full of sheep and lambs and they were more of a GREY colour than White
They are so cute but I can’t imagine them gambolling about or trekking on any fells. They look very short in the legs.
Awwww, they're lovely! They look so peaceful there, tucking in!
Short in the leg.
Are you thinking about leg of lamb Veronica?
I bet not many Standishers have ever heard of Bowling Green farm.
What ever they are, they'll be great with roast spuds, mash potato's, vegetables and gravy.
Most definitely Anne my favourite meat. I likes a nice chump chop me.
I think the breed is Devon and Cornwall longwool.
David, for today's Photo a Day you've earned a round of applause from the the flock. https://media.giphy.com/media/xT8qBepJQzUjXpeWU8/giphy.gif
Thanks Cyril - and other commentators. Ewe've gorra laff!
The Valais Blackface sheep look enormous from close range. They are so friendly that they will come the gate and allow you to pet them.
