One can barely get enough of sheep counting numbers, can one? Those above count 16 in the Bowland forest, in Wiltshire and in the Wear valley respectively.
Fortunately, the Welsh (or possibly Celtic) numbers abound in and around England's Lake District — and they can be used for counting more than sheep; stitches, for example, in knitting, and emails, of course, in Shortmail. (When you're through 20, carve a notch in a tally.)
