Joe's Hill Sheep

As a counterpoint to last week's Bananakeet-adjacent goats, this week's creature feature is of the sheep that wander the top of Joe's Hill Road.

The Joe's Hill Sheep are a larger group than the groups of goats on island. There are about 20 or so members of this flock, compared to 8-10 members in each tribe of goats.

The sheep tend to stay clustered fairly close together, too. These lambs are woolier than I've ever seen any of the sheep on island. I have a feeling their owners shear them pretty regularly. Either that or they're naturally non-wooly.

I think the sheep have made an excellent choice in grazing grounds with views like this.
