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 actual 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…

  3. Sheep are funny. Have you seen the you-tube video of that sheep screaming? It is funny.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Thanks I love sheep. I used to have one.
    Well technically it wasn’t mine, you see I lived on a ranch and one day I came home and the whole flock had been beheaded for a party, and I adopted the only one that had been spared but I could never get the owners to sell it to me.
    But these photos are adorable.

  8. The spring lamb is too cute! I still have a scar on my knee from the day my sister and I decided to climb over a fence to feed a couple of lambs we spotted and an irate Ram came charging at us, we ran but I got caught in the barbed wire fence and ripped my knee- ouch!

  9. I now have a new respect for sheep. That was some sheep that butted you over the fence managing to get just the right spin on you to pull off your trousers! HA! And all this time I thought sheep were dumb!

  10. Hmmm, funny? Maybe. Dumb? Yes. Not you, the sheep. Last time I drove thru the Scottish Highlands at night it was a ragged, zigzag trip because it seems that after dark in late autumn the sheep like to lie down on both sides of the narrow roadway with just their heads on the still warm ashphalt!

  11. We live in the city, and he won’t let it live in the house. One day, we’ll have a giant place in the country, and I’ll get a a whole flock. For reals.

  12. Spring lambs are always funny, and they really do act like they have springs in their legs! Coming from Wales we have loads of sheep just wondering around so I get to see loads of funny things they do.

  13. There is seriously nothing I love more than the bleat of a sheep or a goat. I’ve been asking my husband for one for years, to no avail. This made my day.

  14. For more fun with sheep, search You Tube for video of GA Tech Goat Show–most of the animals featured are goats, but they are now branching out and training the sheep as well (this is a lab for a class in Applied Behavior Analysis at GA Tech which involves training the petting zoo animals at the Atlanta Zoo–my old roommate is the instructor. This semester a goat is learning to do the electric slide….

  15. Well, not that painful for me, because I’m a girl, but it’s just awkward 😀

    If you don’t mind my asking, how old were you during during the sheep incident?

  16. I don’t imagine it was fun for you at the time. One time I got butted by a sheep too, just not over a fence. it hurt! But now we can laugh. right?

  17. Wow, what an unfortunate experience!! I’d say my most embarrassing animal experience has been limited to my cat stepping on my crotch on his way across the couch… But compared to yours, that’s pretty okay. Great pics by the way!!

  18. I love #1, #6, and #7 – the lambs are having a ball as only the curious young can be when exploring their world. I get a chuckle from the ones in the snow – I would love to see other ones in the snow too. Once again you have come up with another unexpected subject – great job!

  19. Very amusing, quite entertaining, and if I might add, a jewel in laughter’s crown. #1,#4, and my favourite…The Gentleman Sheep #8(the queen is undoubtedly amused). Cheers.

  20. Fun trip to the zoo for you and the audience. Took my son to the Seattle zoo. The elephants were in a pit, and had eaten all the fresh grass their trunks could reach. Son picked clumps of grass to feed them, and attracted five or six co-conspirators, who were all told to cease by park employee. Son drew hanful of grass back – elephant expressed disgutst by blowing out through trunk…about a bucket-full of mucus all over son and gang. There’s a disgusting Top Ten thought…Top Ten shots of kids covered in…
    Later….
