  • Sheep are strange things

    24 May 2004 – Sheepbreak (46k image)

    I guess that we all know that sheep are a bit strange but they seem to do pretty well here. These are of the 'fat tailed' variety which are very resistant to water stress. Here they are taking a lunch break and as a friend remarked 'they spend all day eating but rest during the time that we are eating our lunch'. As I said, they are strange animals :-)
