Roll out the red carpet for roundoak sheep

Roundoak Hebridean sheep have become well known locally for the work they do conservation grazing around Kent and of course the supply of meat to several public houses. This was therefore a first for a selected few from Roundoak!

Roundoak Hebridean were contracted to provide a small flock of sheep on a film set located at Hampton Court Palace in South West London.

The sheep spent their days on a film set for an upcoming blockbuster movie with well known actors Ewan McGregor, Bill Nightly and Nicholas Hoult in an adaption of Jack and The Beanstalk called 'Jack the Giant Killer' which is due to be released in Summer 2012.

The sheep were used in one of the palace's beautiful courtyards.  They were penned in old fashion wooden hurdles which formed part of the main back drop of one of the scenes filmed in the palace.

Roundoak Hebriden are one of the largest flocks of Hebridean sheep in the southern part of the UK.  Based in Sutton Valence, the flock now stands at amost 500 in numbers and the breed can be seen in many locations around Maidstone including Teston Country Park and the Loose Valley.  Hebridean sheep are stars in conservation grazing and they also maybe stars in the film industry!
