Some interesting sheep facts:

White House woolies
President Woodrow Wilson grazed sheep on the White House South Lawn. The wool obtained from the sheep was sold to raise money for the Red Cross during World War I. The flock included "Old Ike," a tobacco-chewing ram.

Beautiful lighting and brushwork! We have goats, but unfortunately they don't mow our lawn when out, they just eat my roses!

Love the transition of color here, from his back to his underside.
The recent Cowboy is great too.
