When we used to keep chickens in the same barn as the sheep, sometimes the chickens would use the sheep as a stepping stone to get up to the manger where they roosted. It didn't do much for the fleeces due to the occasional "accident," but the sheep seemed to enjoy having the chicken on its back for the moment. The sheep would try to peer around to look at the sheep on its back at the same time proudly showing off. "I have a chicken on my back and you don't."

The kittens are getting very adventurous. The black one chases the bantam rooster and was the first to decide to sit on one of the sheep about a week ago. The grey kitten is a bit more cautious. Fred caught these photos of the kittens and the sheep together.

Kittens and sheep together? Is there anything cuter in the world?!

What a nice war bed a sheep's back would make.

How sweet! Our Finn and Finn/Gotland X sheep will chase away any barn cats that get in their space.
