He would have you by the short and curlies !

He appears to have a swollen scrotum.

Comment by: Broady on 26th May 2024 at 06:16

I guess it is male.

Comment by: Irene Roberts on 26th May 2024 at 07:51

Agreed, Dennis......if yon mon says it's twelve o'clock. it's twelve o'clock and no arguing! I hope it's okay though, although it looks bonny enough! I'm not sure what it is....is it a shorn sheep?

Comment by: Pat McC on 26th May 2024 at 08:13

He's a ram.

Comment by: Tony L on 26th May 2024 at 08:15

The dangly bit at the rear tells me it's a ram that has been polled (had its horns removed).
Possibly the Texel breed, judging by the shape of its head.

Looks like it caught you cheating at dominoes.

Comment by: Veronica on 26th May 2024 at 08:39

It looks part bull and part summat else …..whatever - it’s fierce looking. It looks like it’s got two mushrooms in its ears! Poor thing.

Its a ram. There's nowt wrong with it. It's in good nick.
Their 'tackle' is normally that size.

Comment by: Frank Farrimond on 26th May 2024 at 09:01

If it is a shorn sheep it doen't look best pleased about it.is that a horn in the middle of its head?

Comment by: Meg on 26th May 2024 at 09:46

Are you surprised I'm mad? Look what they've done to me.

It was in a field on its own between Woods Rd and Hall Lane, Aspull.
They must have been keeping him in good fettle for the week-end.
I think Gary is right, the last time I saw a face like that was the last time I played a ‘rung’ domino.

Comment by: David Barker on 26th May 2024 at 10:30

He doesn't look to pleased Dennis , probably doesn't like having his photo taken , he reminds in of Shrek LOL

Comment by: Jembo on 26th May 2024 at 10:34

Thats an XL Bully Sheep lol.

Comment by: John (Westhoughton) on 26th May 2024 at 12:37

Think I may have gone off lamb chops after seeing that devil (smiley face)………Veronica those are I.D.tags in its ears.

Comment by: Pw on 26th May 2024 at 13:07

It’s a tup and can’t wait to get back to the ewes.

Comment by: Colin Traynor on 26th May 2024 at 13:17

Jumbo, I thought same something similar.
Now I think it is some kind of mutant ninja attack creature, an experiment that went tragically wrong.
But spare a kind thought for the poor animal, we can’t all be born beautiful and appealing, I’m sure his mother loved him.
Glad you were on this side of the fence though Dennis. Great picture.

Comment by: Veronica on 26th May 2024 at 14:04

John there’s not many sheep round Westhoughton these days I didn’t realise they were I D studs. There were plenty sheep on Skye though and in the Highlands;o)

It’s a tup and can’t wait to get back to the ewes.

Comment by: Dennis Seddon on 26th May 2024 at 15:08

Colin, believe me, I had no intention whatsoever of getting on the other side of the fence! I scuttled off as soon has I had taken the photo. That fence looked a bit too flimsy to contain this creature against his will!!

Comment by: WN6 on 26th May 2024 at 16:54

Pw. In the 1970’s I was invited to TupAware party. Goodness me the goings on. Had to make runner and left my sheepskin coat behind.

Comment by: John(Westhoughton) on 26th May 2024 at 17:27

Veronica I’ve always wanted to go to Skye but not got there yet,when going over Shap it’s as if you’re in a different world I think Balmoral is the furthest north I’ve been,easy mistake about the I.D.tags.

Comment by: Veronica on 27th May 2024 at 12:56

I try to go somewhere different every year in Scotland John. I went to Balmoral and Glamis and passed the naughty Duchess of Argyle’s place last year. I want to go to Arran next time. Also the Orkney’s when I get the chance. ;o))

Comment by: Linma on 3rd June 2024 at 14:09

It is a tup and a Texel, look at its square face and, bless it, its done its job it can now rest and just spend the summer eating grass until “it’s time to start all over again “.
