Here's a bit of sheep behavior that I find entertaining. It seems that all breeds exhibit this so it must have proven to be a survival mechanism for the species at some dim point in the past. When a flock of sheep is disturbed by an unfamiliar person or animal, they put their heads up to watch at first. If they still are alarmed, they gather together in a big sheep clump and run away. One of the older animals in the flock leads them. It's thought that this behavior actually made herding sheep possible. Of course dogs are trained to do this and it works out quite well.
Sheep spend their days grazing and resting. If the weather is hot, they graze longer at night, which makes sense.
Here's something that proves that sheep can have the opposite effect on the land than their relatives the goats. Whereas goats tend to leave the land bare and open to erosion, sheep improve soil fertility. This is especially important and helpful on sandy and otherwise poor soil.
If you are the kind of person that likes to wear matching silver jewelry, I'd suggest combining these sterling silver sheep face dangling earrings with either the full body sheep pendant, the little pendant or the full body sheep pin.
