This was captured at LakeDistrict, England. The view was so fantastic that most of the loans were occupied by sheeps ‘all down’ as if on a lunch break. As i closed near one got up and looked at me and eventually they all got alerted and stood still until i left them alone in peace. Wonderful creatures.
Sheep are called ruminants because they have more than one stomach. This means that everything they eat goes through 4 chambers during their digestion process, grass or hay is VERY important to keep them healthy.
When sheep receive a haircut, it is called shearing. The wool that is cut off is washed to get dirt, insects, and straw that may have stuck to the sheeps’ fur out. The cleaned wool is then dyed to color it. The wool is combed and spun into yarn.

Sheep have poor eyesight but an excellent sense of hearing
