Is this the world's laziest sheep?

Recommended Posts

Kimchi: I'll tell you what's wrong with that there sheep, BYB my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

BYB: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting...it's the world's laziest sheep.

Kimchi: Look, matey, I know a dead sheep when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

BYB: No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable sheep, the English Romney, idn'it, ay? Beautiful fleece!

Kimchi: The fleece don't enter into it. It's stone dead.

He's probably pining for the fjords :)

I thought it was dead...so went to have a closer look then it turned its head to me and at that moment I knew I had to take a photo!

Also - went shopping in our local international supermarket and finally your name twigged.

For the longest time I was trying to work out what your name meant!

Here in wildest Wales, the sheep are also very obliging.;)

 

its all very well if they are easy

but where is the challenge in that?

the thrill of the chase, the wooing, the foreplay...?

[mention=2989]BackyardBullion[/mention] sometimes when sheep get too fat they get on their backs and can’t get up again so if they don’t get pushed over they are normally dead in 12 hours.   So if you see this just give them a push and save a life
Now I never knew that. I just googled it & especially around lambing season they can become top heavy.

BYB you murderer :D or are you having Mutton today?

I've seen this in the fields near work and assumed it was down to the fleece being left uncut. One or two seemed to fall over at night and by morning were sodden and heavy, took some effort rolling them back over :lol:

Great pic :D  There's always one in every group, the rest are obviously embarrassed. "oh for pity's sake, Bert. There are humans looking"

Very Gary Larson. Been too long since i last dug out his books.
