sheep drives

So today I got caught in my second sheep drive...ON MY BIKE!!! I wasn't really sure what to do (either time) and since I was going with the flow of sheep I just scootched by on the side of the road. The sheep got freaked out, as sheep do, and ran away from me as I approached them. Although, I did get a good scare from one who stopped not too far in front of me and stared at me, but she moved just in the knick of time.
My first sheep drive occurred last week, but I was in the car and moving against the flow of sheep. Again I just scootched around them, but I had to drive on the right side of the road. I couldn't help but take the opportunity to snap a pic through my dirty windshield! Oh and right after the first sheep drive, there was a cattle drive, it too was funny and entertaining, but just not as cool as the sheep.
Many of the local sheep are lambing right now, so I got to see some cute little lambs on my ride today too and some momma sheep with loads of milk hangin' low.

You know your profile still says you're in wisconsin... I guess they have sheep and cattle there too though, huh? Glad to see your finished socks- your computer cam takes much better pics than mine!
