Partners

To keep up the ‘Always look on the bright side of life’ theme I seem to be adopting today, here is a contribution to the weekly photo challenge, which is themed on partners, rather appropriately.

This photograph depicts two sheep statues on the High Street in Lockerbie, Dumfries and Galloway. They are part of a larger flock of five or six sheep that are permanently plonked outside the Town Hall as a reminder of the history of Lockerbie as a market town and the wider area’s agriculture that continues to this day. I was rather tickled by them and Lockerbie more generally – I was only there to catch a train home but I liked it. I couldn’t imagine living there but it was a pleasant enough place.

  2. I grew up in Wales where sheep would stand on the road way and not move out of the way for cars so this made me smile so much ! Real life sheep are better off on the mountains but these look great on the paving stones 😉

  3. Sheep….sheep waking me up with incessant bleating, ‘What’s that? Your head is caught in the fence? Poor lambiekins, we’ll save you!’ Fully awake against our will we go outside, the newly startled lamb that had been bleating a steady beat for 10 minutes in the early morn, interrupting our sleep, simply looked up at us, took two steps back and freed itself. All along all it had to do to free itself from the evil fence was to back up. I gotta million sheep stories.

    I love lamb chops. 😉
