Nothing like the neighbours putting their house on the market to attract a multiplicity of looky-loos and nosy parkers.  Although the OED has chosen the ‘for sale’ meaning of the word for today, there is another meaning, namely: ‘A person who comes or stops to look at something out of curiosity, esp. when such attention is unwelcome’ (OED).  And I have to put myself in that category; I screeched to a halt when I came across this field full of extraordinary-looking sheep (I think his facial expression is a good gauge of my welcomeness), and even having googled ‘sheep with square heads’, I can find no evidence that this type of sheep actually exists as a breed.  Some sort of government experimental farm?  A genetic modification programme in progress?  I doubt that we shall ever know, but I would suggSheep_LRest to the cat-lovers who posted a sad looking poster nearby about their missing pet, that they probably need look no more …  a sheep can’t get that big on grass alone … can it?

 

Day #233 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
