Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Something is not right on the tiny island of Mull in
Scotland my sauces at Molly Media inform me. One farmer has resorted to a
makeover with a difference in a bid to stop sheep rustling. He thought up this eye catching solution after thieves pinched as many as 200 of his sheep and gives us some ‘sheep thrill’s at
the same time. The ‘shear’ bare faced cheek of the thieves fleecing the
neighbourhood. Using a vivid imagination and some dye, the sheep have been given
a colourful orange rinse. Is that where all the surplus fake tan has been
going? The non-toxic dye does the sheep no harm and eventually wears off with
no side effects for the animals. Maybe baarrmy but the future is sure bright
for these sheep and those are some coats to dye for! Being easy to distinguish
the farmer felt it was easier for him and his neighbours to keep a beady eye out
for thieves. They sure are ewe-nique and talk about pulling the wool over the criminals eyes or is it bleating the competition? Ewe've got to be joking we
hear you say but this is apparently an old farmers trick used in winter so the
sheep can be seen in the snow! Perfect I’ve been trying to buy an orange dog
coat for years. What a yarn, but It's all wool round the needle to me. What
colour would you dye the sheep?
