The World’s Top 10 Best Pictures of Funny Sheep

I will never forget the 19th of August 2001. Because on that dreadful day while at a local  “City Zoo” I was in a field full of sheep (that I was feeding with a bag of seeds or whatever they gave me) when one decided it would be funny to “head butt” me over a fence, snagging my trousers on the way over and exposing my bare, rare end to all within range of my own high pitched calls for help! I felt so embarrassed but the farmer tried to comfort me be saying that it happens to him all the time, and that sheep are actually as playful and fun loving as many a dog! So maybe we should find out if sheep really are as “fun” as that farmer suggests, by finding out just what is…

    Yes, tame sheep can be like that. It was a deer that got me, it chewed on my hair. I learned I shouldn’t stick my head through the fence :)

  3. Funny and painful. And it was no problem at all.

  9. Thank you so much, it is great to hear you enjoyed them.

  10. The little lamb with his all-four-paws-jump and the streetdancer are my favorites, but I love the expressions of the other sheep too, you captioned them very well, they really have talkative faces. I had a real laugh on the two snowmen.

  11. No problem with the following, and yes spring lambs are just best!

    Thanks for the laugh (and for following my blog). I love these sheep photos, but my favorite is the “spring lamb.” I always love lambing season, because there’s a ceaseless joy in watching them dance and jump and spring.

Which one did you like?
