This is literally a book about Beautiful Sheep. With photos of forty different champion sheep representing their breed. Each breed page includes features, use, related breeds, size, origin, and current world distribution of each breed.
As a born and bred city girl, I’m not sure why I have a fascination with the variances in farm animal breeds. It may be related to my obsession with watching dog shows on television. I’m sure I’m not the only person running into the bedroom to watch the Puppy Bowl every Super Bowl Sunday. Right? RIGHT?
Anyway, the Beautiful Sheep depicted here are as varied as dog breeds. There are some that look like dogs, deer, cats, and someone you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark alley. Those horns mean business! Again, before you say how can you say a sheep looks like a cow, I’m a city girl who has never seen a sheep up close before.
If you like sheep or photography that really catches the essence of an animal’s personality, you will enjoy this book. 4 stars! More stars if you are a sheep rancher or sheep whisperer.
Thanks to Ivy Press, Quarto Books, and NetGalley for granting my wish for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
