Sheep in a shed I inadvertently disturbed this sheep that had been sheltering the night in a shed in the Lake District. The knots in the piece of wood that is hiding the sheep's upper face caught my eye!  Cumbria,Domestic sheep,Ovis aries,sheep,wildlife Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

Sheep in a shed

  1. Hehe, a lot of creativity here, love the humour. This goat approves your shot:

    Capra hircus girgentana No english wiki page, so here is a translation from the dutch wiki page:<br />
<br />
The Girgentana goat (Capra hircus girgentana) is a breed of goats, which origin dates from the Italian province of Agrigento in Sicily. The city of Agrigento was called until 1929 Girgenti and its the breed is named. The origin of the breed is unknown. A striking feature of the animals constitute the horns, which are - in contrast to most other varieties goats - tightened, and the trestle in a length of 80 cm can be achieved. This has led to suspicions that the Girgentana-breed descended from the Central Asian screw horn goat (Capra falconeri). However, his horns are spirally outwards, while the Girgentana goats horns turn inwards. BestZOO,Capra aegagrus hircus,Domestic Goat,Geotagged,The Netherlands

Sheep are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates. Although the name "sheep" applies to many species in the genus ''Ovis'', in everyday usage it almost always refers to ''Ovis aries''. Numbering a little over one billion, domestic sheep are also the most numerous species of sheep.

Sheep are most likely descended from the wild mouflon of Europe and Asia. One of the earliest animals.. more
