about the sheep .. seeing you asked jeb ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' NikonJeb .:)
sam and ram live in the paddock like 'normal' sheep but are very tame and follow you and bleat when they see you .. they were both hand reared ..
this is ram's start in life ..

i'd let them into our house yard a few weeks ago and quite by chance they had come to our bedroom window when katee was inside ..
so .. when the window view challenge was announced my first thought was to get the sheep at the window possibly with katee interracting with them from in the bedroom ..

for the challenge most of the photographs i took included katee ... but i liked the one I entered coz it was funny ..
for oliver ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' eyewave .. great idea of sticking the bread to the window but i'm not that imaginative .. the sheep was eating the bread and it was dropping from his mouth when i took the pic ... had put some pieces of bread near the window so they'd get as close as possible ..
the sheep love bread and will jump on you to get to it ..

This is absolutely terrifying.
I used to get bailed up by an irate sheep every time I used the outdoor loo when I lived on a farm.
She was hand raised by my aunt who used to treat her with Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs (caramelised popcorn).
I'm sure the sheep, whose name was Rani, thought that I was holding out on her and a few well aimed
head butts would get me to hand them over.
I don't know how you can possibly live with such beasts! LOL

The expression on the sheep's face is fantastic! Want to know what exactly it has seen to make it drop its lunch. Congrats on the great finish.

Love the sheep! (Roz's sheep?) Love the expression on the face, but don't care for the piece of bread. (is it bread?) The face is so wonderful, but I keep getting distracted wondering if it's bread and why sheep would like bread... :D -7-
