Sheep in the news

As many of my friends know, I think sheep (and lambs in particular) are adorably cute. So if something involving sheep comes up, it immediately gets my attention. For example, this video of "Extreme Shepherding." It's not real, but it's cool.



On the "it really is news side, we have Bruno, the bruiser lamb. Bruno was born 21 pounds. That's three times the normal seven pound weight for a lamb. Because of his unusual size (does that make him a LOUS?), Bruno will not be someone's Easter dinner. His owners want to see how big he'll get. Meanwhile, the Guinness people are on the case to see if he's the biggest lamb, ever.
