Sheep are from Venus and Goats from Mars

Sheep are ubiquitous in Wales and parts of England.

Here is a selection of a number of different breeds of sheep. Often likened to measles in the landscape sheep are more intelligent than most people imagine. An ewe can recognise its lamb out of a flock of hundreds of lambs just by its call, and scientists have shown that sheep are adept at navigating mazes. Goats are more cautious than sheep and rather difficult to photograph in the wild. I find dusk the best time to photograph both sheep and goats.
