Online popularity of farm animals?

Returning to the age old question of "What is the relative online popularity of livestock?" we first explored eighteen months ago; today's post is a revisit to this burning question. I know that someone, somewhere has been wondering.

This iteration comes squarely under the "because we can" methodology and is simply the frequency in which the keywords, "chicken", "cow", "goat", "horse", "pig" and "sheep" show up in .com domain names.

Simple, elegant and proving insight to an unanswered sheep related question. Unfortunately it shows that sheep fall far behind their horsey heads as well as their bovine brethren. Even their chicken comrades and goat groupies are doing better.

So sadly, while we cannot foresee (ahem) flights of sheep everywhere, the pigs have not gained controlled as of yet! In fact, it is the horse and cow that is more to be feared.

Sheep of the world, Unite! You have nothing to lose but your fleece!

Beasts of England, Beasts of France-land,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken to my joyful tidings
Of the Golden future time.

Soon or late the day is coming,
Tyrant Pig shall be o'er thrown,
And the fruitful fields of our lands
Shall be trod by sheep alone.*

* Apologies to George Orwell
