There have been some "Outstanding" sheep over the course of time that I'd like to point out to Ewe. The first are a pair of Merino sheep from New Zealand named Shrek 1 & Shrek 2. Shrek 1 avoided the shearers for more than 6 years. Shrek's 60 lb. fleece was used to make 20 men's suits, which were auctioned for charity. Shrek 2 roamed for 7 yrs., & had a fleece of 68.2 lbs.!
|Shrek 2 managed to hide out for over 7 years & missed being sheared 7 times!|
|The shearers finally caught up with Shrek 1 & he felt 60 lbs. lighter!|
|The question is," Are Ewe Feeling Lucky"?|
|Lucky was a beloved family pet!|
Dolly, the first mammal to be cloned, gained instant fame in 1997, when the Roslin Institute of Scotland announced her birth. Dolly had three different mothers; One provided the DNA; another provided the egg the DNA was injected into; & the third mother carried the cloned embryo. It took 276 attempts before finally achieving success. Dolly had 6 lambs before dying 6 years later. Dolly was stuffed & put on display in the Royal Museum of Scotland.

|Hello Dolly! Don't Ewe think Dolly is looking a little "STUFFY"?|
|Things are really not looking that "Baaa...D"!|
|Ewe might sat I have a different perspective on life!|
|A double minded sheep is unstable in all his ways!|
The last famous sheep to look at is "Shaun the Sheep". He is an animated sheep that is no ordinary sheep. He can paint, dance, & play a guitar. He's chock full of clever ways to lead his flock both into & out of trouble. Shaun was first seen n 1995 in a Wallace & Gromit short called a "Close Shave". He surfaced again in 2007 in his own animated series by Aardman Animations.
|Watch me on You tube! It's not that "Baaa...d" of a series!|
Sheep are very ordinary domestic animals in many ways, yet each has its own distinctiveness. The Shepherd has the shear joy of caring for all the different varieties.
|My distinctive Face should bring a SMILE to EWERS!|
