Just goes to show, even Sheep can get into traffic jams. (Digg.)
A herd of sheep go for a stroll in Venice, Italy. Some of them decide to stop off for a quick nibble!
“All Ferdinand wanted was a few pears,” writes Meredith T. “But after climbing a 4 ft. fence and ‘destroying’ 5 pear trees on the Santa Cruz farm where he lives, the owner of the farm threatened Ferdy with bodily harm! Fortunately for Ferdinand, he had a friend in Perry, a college student who rents a room on the farm and had become very attached to the gentle ‘pear thief supreme.'”
“After being given just a couple of weeks to find a home for Ferdinand, he contacted Farm Sanctuary, who happily welcomed the master pear thief to their Orland shelter on Tuesday, where he will serve a life sentence of grazing with his herd, basking in the sun, and eating as much fruit as his heart desires.”
[*Note: Only problem is, now I’ve got ABBA’s “Fernando” stuck in my head. “♬ There was something in the air that night ♬ …” RRRR. -Ed.]
“Taken while on vacation in New Zealand during lambing season. Saw hundreds of lambs from afar and two up close. These two are being walked by their owners who were girls in the NZ equivalent of the 4H Club.” -Cyndie C.

Taking a momentary detour from our Cat Café World Tour- we find ourselves in Seoul, South Korea, for what certainly must be the first ever Sheep Café featured here. According to the RN24 story, they can roam the “Thanks Nature Café” when it isn’t too crowded, and you can feed ’em hay, too.
Hay! It’s the Year Of The Sheep, after all.

“We had two more twin lambs (Reuben and Summer) born at the Farm Sanctuary New York Shelter on Monday,” says Meredith T.
“These babies are in addition to Hazelton, who was born last week— both to mothers who were pregnant at the time we rescued them.”
“As we start of the Year of the Sheep, this is how the first moments of life should be for ALL lambs.”
“Here at Farm Sanctuary, mama and babies will live out their lives together.”
We’ve received a lot of great photos from #Snowmageddon2015! “Our 7 month old German Short-Haired Pointer, Jax, (above) just loves the snow as you can see in this picture my husband took the other day.” -Brenda M.
If you have some photos, send ’em our way,
as we’re working on Volume II right now! It’s done! (Add the location, too.) And who else do we have today? Let’s dive in!
“First photo is a blizzard pic of Peanut. This is only her second snow storm ever since leaving Costa Rica. She didn’t know it was so deep when she jumped in! Poor snowy Peanut. (Otto is with Peanut in the second photo, didn’t want to leave him out!) ” -Deirdre and Ken.
“We are in New York, just missing the really bad snow, but here is Nahreet (Her name comes from the first time i saw her, when she came to us very ill, i’m Scottish and said ‘That sheep’s nah reet as in not right’) and Missy-Moo checking out the snow.” -Carol B.
“Little Penny the Yorkie caught a perfect snowflake under her eye!” -Jeni C.
“There’s going to be a blizzard coming soon, good thing I have my trusty Abominable Snowman handy,” says Kevin the pup. Photo by Yuan.
“Our dog Tucker Bob really loves the snow. Taken by his dad Steve P. in Boston.” -Zoe B.
Where ELSE would you find Sheep wearing Santa Hats? Nowhere else, that’s where!
“Hello, you posted some photos of Missy wearing her Bob The Builder outfit for Halloween, i was wondering if you would like to see her and her pals getting festive?” -Carol B.
We don’t get too many Sheepsters on Cute Overload because…we don’t. But Missy-Moo’s here to reverse that trend! “This is our sheep Missy-Moo, we took her in because her owner was going to send her to market, she is quite the character! Here we see her trying out Halloween costumes, she can’t decide if she wants to be a hip-hop artist or Bob the Builder, she is a little worried the tool belt makes her butt look big.” -Carol B.
