Camera Critters #2; Sheep

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, head over here to see who’s participating and have a look at some more critters.

Australia is full of sheep. And Sheeple.

How else to account for the great numbers who watch Big Bully, Australian Idle and Race Around the Galaxy?

Here is a group of those sheep who look ready to revolt.

They are sheeping the barricades. Planning to wipe out Mint Sauce.

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!

Do you hear the sheeple sing?
Singing a song of angry rams?
It is the music of ovines
Who will not be shorn again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

  7. Thanks everyone. I’m disappointed none of you picked the verse from Les Miserables 🙂 Oh, and Buff, those sheep have been mulesed, not crutched – Crutching is a different operation!

  14. @ David, It depends on wether or not I’ve had my coffee 🙂

    @ Sharon, They really gave me a glare when I started taking shots of them.

    @ Maggie, I must post the shot I got of the lambs.

    @ Lilli, I think they are the standard Australian merino.

    @Philipa – I like your thinking.

    @ Rach, Thank you for seeing the humour. 🙂
