Sheep Saturday

Though I think this may be a woolly goat. Help, Alan, please!

Looks like a horned poodle... smile
Lisl: Quite indeterminate, then, Larry
Il est drôle tout frisé.
Lisl: Perhaps he has had a perm, Martine

This is not a Goat, but is a sheep, Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you for that, Ray - I couldn't find him in my "Know Your Sheep" book, or even in my "Know More Sheep" book

No, no, it is a sheep, an extraordinary one, perhaps a Dorset Horned Sheep?
Lisl: Thank you, Philine, for your confirmation that it is a sheep, but I don't think it is a Dorset Horn

I suspect this thing doesn't know what it is, nor I doubt if it cares. If I had the money I would buy Mr Alan Rolfe a herd of them. Whatever they are..
Lisl: And wouldn't Mr Rolfe be in his element. Perhaps when he gets to his second stage of retirement he will become a gentleman farmer
Un superbe mouton ..quelle belle toison ..
Lisl: He certainly is a great specimen, Claudine

We'll, now I'm not so sure that this is a sheep. It has the stature of a goat, the muzzle of a goat and the ears looms to be goat-ish. It is a beautiful animal whatever it is!
Lisl: Difficult to sort the sheep from the goats, Alan
It is a most unusual character be it a Goat or a Sheep.
Lisl: Alan says it is an Angora Goat
It is a gorgeous specimen of something. The wool or hair does remind one of a poodle.
Lisl: The lady who owns these spins the wool
superbe spécimen!! aùitiés
Lisl: He really is!
Goat or sheep, it sure is cute.
Lisl: Alan has now told me it is an Angora Goat

Such a cutie and I love the DoF in your photo smile
Lisl: Thank you very much, Cherie
Wow - he's an unusual one!
Lisl: Rather handsome, eh?
What a very original fur with all these buckles which have to give beautiful balls of wool. He also has attractive horns
