Sheep Saturday

Foggy start to our ‘summer’ day here in the south of New Zealand. Opened the front door to find the next-door sheep staring straight at me and chewing its cud. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

  1. When I was a kid we did sometimes open the door to a sheep or two. The fences on some of the fields around us weren’t that good so sheep sometimes stooped by in our garden for a quick snack!

    1. Here in rural towns it’s common for a vacant lot to be grazed by sheep to keep the lot tidy. There’s about 10 sheep in the lot next to us (its actually 2 lots – one on our east side and the same again on the north side – owned by the same owner). The sheep-owner collects them every so often and takes them to other lots in town. By “collect” I mean she literally turns up with bread in a bag and they follow her out the gate and along the street(s) to the next ‘lot’ of grazing ๐Ÿ™‚

            1. True. From my point-of-view it’s sweet to see them in the paddock but the only shade-tree is near to our front door. They all gather there when it gets hot so it gets pongy and attracts flies. I’m always happy to see them leave!
