The Unique Physique of Sean the Sheep
Does my bum look big in this?
Don’t be alarmed, it’s not a growth requiring veterinary care, it’s merely the result of spending a year noshing on plentiful, fresh, green pastures with no restriction on intake i.e. a fat bum. One that any sheep worth its wool would be proud to display (maybe). Sean the Sheep was sheared recently and once the wool was off the most enormous derriere imaginable was uncovered. Glancing from a distance you would almost believe that he was in the process of growing a second head. My shearer commented politely that he could do with a week or two off pasture, but I suspect that it would take more than couple of weeks to shift that lardy lump of a rump.
The fact of the matter is, my sheep are lifestyle sheep. They may be called farm animals, but to me they are pets. Their only job is to keep the grass down and in return they can have the run of the place, the assurance that they won’t end up on the dinner table and a friendly scratch on the rump every now and then. Not a bad life, eh? And of course, they have a plentiful supply of food, possibly a bit too much as Sean’s derriere attests.
But Sean the Sheep doesn’t care about what’s going on behind him. He doesn’t have access to a mirror or I believe any sense of personal awareness, so he doesn’t judge himself or get judged by the other sheep. As a result, he carries on eating, blissfully unaware of his enormous rump. He is, to all intents, the sheep with a most unique physique.
