Sheep door stop

Last month I made a paper weight as a practice run for this sheep door stop. Popular advice was to give my sheep ears, don’t say I never listen to you.

Looks like a bad hair day on this side as the Cotswold fleece I used was long and wavy. Some sheep look a bit the worse for wear by the time shearing comes round and mine is no exception!

I haven’t modelled this on any particular breed, I just went with what I felt. The main reaspon for the dark legs / base is that it will be on the floor which isn’t known as the cleanest place in the house.

I had great fun doing the face. It’s weighted with stone supplied by Sue and Skye and I’m looking forward to a small flock being created at the workshop this Friday.
