Sheep and the Olympics

We note with interest that the the opening ceremonies of the Olympics included "...70 sheep, 12 horses, ten chickens, three cows, and two goats."

We, of course, take full credit for the high representation of sheep.  Clearly someone on the Olympic committee has been reading our blog and studies of the online popularity of farm animals and decided it was time to do the right thing...


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
