Sheep Trending at Hardwick

Shaggy's 'funky-chic'
sheepishly strutting her stuff
trending at Hardwick

I could not resist a light hearted haiku here!

My mental meandering gripe when traveling around the countryside here in the UK is the state of sheep marking...!
"Why do they have to mark those poor fluffies with such an ugly aesthetic!?"
The sheep are not aware of course! ~ I think?
But ~  it does rather spoil my view of the country idyll seeing huge splodges of red, blue,
or black carelessly daubed over the poor little mites !

~ bla~bla~bla

Now here's a sheep worthy of the grandeur of her surroundings,
with her turquoise tufts, and multi-coloured tab-rings
I'm not a snob you understand!
But my Shaggy stands as an inspiration and aspiration to all of her contemporaries,
or should I say country cousin cohort farmers!

Wonder if it's going to catch on, watch this space...

Sending my light hearted haiku to ~>

I hope this does catch on! Color is good for the soul.

Awwww - poor sheep with their tufts and tags... But she is beautiful anyway! :) I haven't seen sheep in years! There are not herds of them around here like in lovely pastoral England :) Cute post!

I much prefer the turquoise tufts to the day-glow orange that was trending a few years ago. :-)

Delightful. It brought a note of light and cheer to an otherwise cold, gray, and blustery day.

Sheep---and haiku---are always worth a second look!

we just gave our poodle a bath… and this always makes me think of sheep… she's like a little lamb quivering in the tub. (no silly hair color or tags in her ears though)
