What a lovely, poignant homage to sheep!
Chris: Yes I had this one stuffed and displayed in my living room. I wouldn't want to do the same thing with the old bloke though, it might frighten the kiddies

Ha Ha

I think someone has already stuffed the old codger, Chris...he had a facebook posting today claiming he had travelled a couple of metres...I expect it is like this sheep which has castors under the plinth, and cleaners can wheel it out of the way when mopping the floor...
Chris: Well providing we can wheel him away before mopping the floor all will be well
Is this Dolly the Sheep?
Chris: It is a Cotswold Lion in Cirencester museum
Is this a Rolf in sheep's clothing? If not it would make an excellent trophy for Alan.
Chris: I should leave it in his living room really..
It even comes with a little beard. Good shot of Alan BTW.
Chris: I found the shot of AR by Googling his name
A sweater on display...
Chris: A living one Larry
Just what you need as a talking point in the living room.
Chris: What shall we talk about now?

I know - sheep, again..

What a funny looking thing; well passed its best. The sheep is quite good, though (I'm surprised you called it a lion; for information, a lion is a bit like a large cat.
Chris: "The Cotswold sheep, often referred to as the 'Cotswold Lion' was introduced to the UK by the Romans," it says here. Their wool known as the 'Golden Fleece' was an important export. It not only played a major role in the development of many Cotswold towns and villages, but also in the finances of the nation. Sadly times have changed, and they are now classified as a rare breed.

I think we can probably designate your good self to the status of rare breed too..
Very good photo's of sheep & friend!
Chris: They go together perfectly
