Element - - Ecology -

As you drive down the lane to Yealands win­ery, you may well no­tice sheep among the vines that seem to be, well, short. They are the Baby­doll sheep, there to mow the grass un­der the vines but un­able to reach the grapes due to their stature. The even­tual plan is to be able to be able to dis­pense with roar­ing trac­tors mow­ing grass up and down the rows, and let the lit­tle fel­las reign in­stead.
