I would never have credited such a bulky, heavy creature with the agility to leap as this sheep did.
They were penned for shearing, but after some mechanical difficulties with the clippers, the project had to be abandoned for the day.
Releasing the sheep was a challenge. While I was lined up specifically to try and catch them leaping (as I had been warned they would), the wee beasties were so terrified of my camera they simply would not go past me.
After I moved a long way down the paddock, and thus was forced to have the star picket in the picture, they finally braved it.
Cute little things, sheep.
