Funny Welsh Sheep Video

The farmers are led by Gerry Lewis who is a renowned Welsh sheep herding champion and the effects are produced by the light emitting diodes (LEDs) strapped the sheep's back.  Naturally the team at the 'Viral Factory' then use the film footage to create the end-product.
Matt Smith, the co-founder of ad agency The Viral Factory said: "The people on camera are real farmers and they were really controlling the sheepdogs. Rather than trying to fake it all we did it for real.

Will and Guy's Ten Fun Facts About Sheep

  1. There are over 1 billion sheep in the world, more in China than any other country.
  2. Adult female sheep are known as ewes, while adult male sheep are known as rams, and their offspring are lambs.  Between the ages of 1 and 2 a lamb is known as a hoggart, the significance is that once a lamb reaches the age of two, it's meat becomes mutton.
  3. In Wales a group of sheep is known as a flock (cail), but in other parts of the world the collective noun is herd or even a mob.
  4. Interestingly, the plural of sheep is the same as the singular. Can you think of another mammal where this is true?  *See end of this section.Sheep facts
  5. Sheep like to stay close to others, which makes them easier to move together to new pastures.  However, sometimes they are held in a sheepfold, see right.
  6. Sheep have a field of vision of around 300 degrees, allowing them to see behind themselves without having to turn their head.
  7. Sheep are herbivores that eat vegetation especially grass.
  8. The digestive system of sheep features four chambers which help break down what they eat.
  9. If a sheep falls on its back, with all four legs in the air, it's becomes stuck and cannot right itself without help from a farmer.

Skating Sheep

Guy and Will built a skating rink in the middle of a pasture. One day a shepherd leading his flock decided to take a shortcut across the rink. The sheep, however, were afraid of the ice and wouldn't cross it. Desperate, the shepherd began tugging them to the other side. 'Look at that,' remarked Guy to Will. 'That bloke is trying to pull the wool over our ice.'

Racing Sheep

Champion racehorses burst from their starting boxes and charge towards the finishing line, eager to win. Racing sheep, by contrast, usually prefer to amble. That's why horse races are more popular than sheep races. However, Will and Guy have discovered that an English farmer claims one of his racing rams established world record by covering a 220-yard course in just 17 seconds. We heard that the course contained no ewe bends at all. The Hoo Farm in Shropshire, England, is famous for sheep steeplechasing. In fact, at one time, the hurdles for steeplechasing contained flocks of sheep. And here on Ewe-Tube: is a wonderful sheep video

Dutch Sheep Rides Home on Moped Sheep poison

Will and Guy were so surprised to find this photograph of a sheep riding on a moped that we had to research further to find out why this hilarious picture was published in the first place. This picture, which is very definitely of a sheep on a moped, and comes to us from Stompetoren in the northern Netherlands. In Holland, sheep farmer Nick Honig, has adopted the unusual method of transporting his sheep. We have learned that the reason for moving his sheep by moped is that his farm is to vast to transport them in a traditional way using sheepdogs as this would take too long. So, he has chosen this method which we find funny as well as clever.

A Hilarious and Funny Sheep Story from Will and Guy

Martha and the Vicar: The Reverend Maurice Bowler, a children's minister, was talking in Sunday School at St Jude's, Southsea, about the 23rd Psalm. Maurice told the children about sheep, that they weren't clever and needed lots of guidance, and that a shepherd's job was to stay close to the sheep, protect them from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing dumb things that would get them hurt or killed. Maurice pointed to the little children in the room and said that they were the sheep and needed lots of guidance. Then Maurice put his hands out to the side, palms up in a dramatic gesture, and with raised eyebrows said to the children, 'If you are the sheep then who is the shepherd?' He was pretty obviously indicating himself. A silence of a few seconds followed. Then Martha, a young pupil, exclaimed, 'Jesus! Jesus is the shepherd!' Maurice, obviously caught by surprise, said to the youngster, 'Well then, who am I?' Martha frowned, thinking hard, and then said with a shrug, 'Well, I guess you must be a sheep dog.'

Mary Had a Little Lamb

"Mary Had a Little Lamb" is an English language nursery rhyme of nineteenth-century American origin. Mary had a little lamb its fleece was white as snow; And everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go. It followed her to school one day, which was against the rule; It made the children laugh and play, to see a lamb at school. And so the teacher turned it out, but still it lingered near, And waited patiently about till Mary did appear. "Why does the lamb love Mary so?" the eager children cry; "Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know" the teacher did reply. Silly Versions 1. Mary had a little lamb, She ate it with mint sauce, And everywhere that Mary went The lamb went too, of course. 2. Mary had a little lamb Her father shot it dead. Now it goes to school with her, Between two hunks of bread.
MARY had a little lamb ... .... and her doctor had a heart attack.

The Lamb by William Blake

Little Lamb who made thee Dost thou know who made thee Gave thee life and bid thee feed, By the stream &and o'er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing woolly bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice; Little Lamb who made thee Dost thou know who made thee? Little Lamb I'll tell thee, Little Lamb I'll tell thee; He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb: He is meek and he is mild, He became a little child: I a child & thou a lamb, We are called by his name. Little Lamb God bless thee. Little Lamb God bless thee. Footnote: Please send us your funny sheep pictures.
