Well there could be a correlation between that sheep and riding a bike without a helmet but just can't think of the words at the mo.
BTW correlation - spelt it correctly first time Miss Joyce  would have been impressed  *smile*

I'm pretty sure we have a retired police officer on the forum! I believe he lives at 999 Letsbe Avenue




UPDATE: Sorry, I thought you wrote 'policeman'!

Or the IQ of the BMW driver? Two rams fighting for supremacy are going to stop for nothing. Once the heads are down and they are going for the charge, their vision is limited. Big curly horns act as blinkers. If something gets in the way, they don't see it so tough. Many is the innocent new sheep keeper who has discovered this the hard way.
Sheep are often considered stupid, but only by the ignorant.

Sheep are a prey species with a strong flocking instinct. Did someone mutter flocking politicians?

Slightly higher than most randy young men

1) they will only fight till one has enough & walks away
2) they usually will not fight to the death
3) the looser will not go home get a gun and return t shoot the winner
4) the looser wont kill both the winner & the females who shunned him.

LOL. Only in NZ. They wonder why all the jokes are about kiwi's!
 
What do you call a Kiwi with a hundred lovers? A shepherd.
 
Why does New Zealand have some of the fastest race horses in the world? Because the horses have seen what they do with their sheep.
 
How do Kiwi's find sheep in long grass? Delightful!

Sorry fellas, just mention sheep and Kiwi's to an Aussie  *whistle*
Cheers

Ah but to apply logic you need to listen *smile*

back to sheep, used to holiday at our grannies up in the hill in Dumfrieshire , when two of these rams collided the crack would echo around the hills, great memories
