Sheeping sickness
« Reply #25 on: 02/08/2008 21:51:53 »
I was once left in charge of my friends 4 sheep. I think they knew I was an inexperienced farmer. The first day they all escaped and got stuck in hedges. The second day one of them was in a neighbours garden,the neighbour was out and I couldn't see how the sheep had managed to get in there. I left a note on the neighbours door and the neighbour returned the sheep the next day. The following day I was walking down the main road to the gate of the farm only to find the sheep playing chicken with the cars on the main road.
A sheep on a roof is no surprise to me.

Fire crews tried to rescue the sheep but it eventually fell from the roof and suffered a broken leg.
The animal was left with a local farmer so it could be treated.

Heat treatment ?, (Gas Mark 4, one hour per pound).  :)
