'Macgregor', owned by James R. Dempster


There's something pleasingly solid about this sheep.

And yet somehow he also looks like he should be able to hover. . .

Fabulous. Handsome Macgregor...
I can imagine how he smells, though,
after traipsing through the bogs.

He's sort of a sheep-mountain.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Yes, there certainly is.

He does look like he's hovering! But yeah, bog and sheep smells in all that wools, it's no wonder sheep are allowed to wander far from the house.

Honestly, I wish I had a larger print of this to hang on my wall. No idea why, I am not normally into decorating with sheep.

Ms. Moon said...

That is not a normal sheep picture, either.

I kinda what to gently poke that sheep, to see how far I'd have to go before I actually hit sheep.

*want, not what.

All these comments make me laugh. I want to ride him. Into the sky!

EL: I'd be sad if he turned out to be scrawny.

May: You wouldn't need a saddle, he'd be comfy already.
