OMG! It’s spring again and you know what that means – BABY SHEEP SEASON! #besttimeoftheyear…but before we get to the fun part….what would a Chasing Davis blog be without some facts and figures?
According to the Ireland National Sheep and Goat census (yes there is such a thing) there were 3,581,818 sheep in 34,549 flocks in 2014, so even though sheep seem to be everywhere in Ireland there is not even one sheep per person. Compared that to New Zealand, where there used to be 20 sheep for every human, now there are 7 sheep for every human or 30 million sheep! But that’s not even the most in the world, which according to Wikipedia is as follows:
|Rank||Country||Number of Sheep||% of World Total|
That’s a lot of baby sheep (and braised lamb rump, which Kelley tried for the first time recently (Kelley: begrudgingly….I cannot bring myself to eat this little guys!)).
Anyways, you’ve made it through the boring part, here are the pictures!
This special time doesn’t last long but we’re happy to have gotten to see it one more time!
