Where it began
Tyn Drain is a traditional Welsh Family Farm, farming 50 head of pedigree Welsh Black Cattle and 800 Welsh Mountain Ewes, but we also have a very special flock of Pedigree Zwartbles sheep.
We have been showing our Zwartbles quite successfully for a few years now and they draw a lot of attention to themselves in shows for their striking looks.
Lois came up with the idea of sheep walking with the Zwartbles after seeing lama trekking on tv. Since the Zwartbles breed is a very tame, friendly and easily trained sheep the family thought it was a great idea!
Lois alongside her mother Tesni drew up plans to provide a tour around their farmland in Trawsfynydd, taking in fabulous views of the Snowdonia countryside and also giving individuals the opportunity to gain hands on experience with the sheep.
With mentoring from Arloesi Gwynedd Wledig, Lois has been able to set up the business which launched in the summer of 2018.
Meet our ‘Award Winning’ sheep
You’ll be sure of a warm welcome from our friendly flock of Zwartbles sheep – Ash, Eira, Elen, Eryri, Elsbeth, Eveready, Evie and Leusa.
Zwartbles are an elegant sheep (Zwart-Black, Bles-Blaze) with excellent temprement and are an ideal companion for a walk in the countryside.
Our flock have enjoyed considerable success in the show ring due to their striking appearance, amenable nature and loveable character.
