Sleepy Sheep

It's been a while since I entered one of my photos to the Gallery at the Sticky Fingers blog, but I love following both the challenges and the day to day adventures of Tara and her family.  They are Official Toyologists for Playmobil and Toys'r'us and get to play with test out some great fun toys.  Never mind the children, I want to do that job! lol.

But when I saw the theme of this challenge, Faces, I remembered a picture that I took earlier in the year that I thought was perfect, and it is this one of a sheep sleeping:


















It was taken during lambing time in early Spring and it was situated in a marquis at a children's farm visitor centre (Hatton Country World, near Warwick).  Loads of noise was going on around it, young spring lambs jumping up and down, children squealing with excitement at the exploits of the recently born baby lambs and there this sheep was, very calm, standing up and dozing.

Strangely enough, looking at this picture now makes me feel calm, almost sleepy, but maybe that is the unconcious association that I get about 'counting sheep to get you to sleep'. 'You are feeling sleepy.... you are feeling sle...'   Zzzzzzz

To see how others have interpreted the word 'Faces' take a look at The Gallery here

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments,

Beautiful image Nicky, totally agree about the calming effect it has, she looks serene.

What a great picture Nicky - I don't think I've ever seen a sheep up close when it's been sleeping before. It does look so peaceful.
Oh and if you manage to get the job of testing toys can I be your assistant pleeeeease!

Hi Nicky, I love the photo of the sheep, looks like he/she is having a nice dream. I'm your swap partner for Lakota's Xmas swap so I've been looking at your blog for ideas! Sal x
