I suddenly realized today that I hadn't posted any of my sheep photos from my hike on the moors. I don't want the moor sheep to feel left out, do I? I can hear them now, baa-ing in protest. So with this post I'm giving the wooly animals their proper due. I think this is very gracious of me considering the sheep I encountered here avoided humans at all costs. As soon as one came within a ten-foot distance, off they went! That's rather rude. But on the bright side, isn't the lamb pictured above adorable?
I love how they kneel down to graze
Why isn't there a yoga position named for it?
As you can see the sheep pictured above
was grazing directly on the path when he saw our approach
After which he decided to eat elsewhere
Sheep aren't very people friendly
Another wee lamb
This particular specimen looks very stoic
That's it. I'm all out of sheep photos, which I'm sure causes great heartbreak for many. Before I sign off, I'll reiterate the great lesson we can all learn from these animals, given to us by a little pig called Babe: 'Baa, ram, ewe! Baa, ram, ewe! To your sheep, your herd, your clan be true! Baa, ram, ewe!' Maybe I should try shouting it the next time I come across a flock?
