Even the Farm Animals are Trying to Trick Me.

I love walks in the UK countryside. Even though I grew up on a farm and should be at least somewhat immune to the charms of lambs gamboling in the fields and calves trotting alongside their mamas, I am still entranced by the animals that surround me here. Take for example this picturesque hillside field filled with the holstein pattern of grazing animals:

We continued on our walk, but I decided to try and get a closeup of one of these calves on the way back. I affixed my zoom lens and zeroed in the nearest one. What the ???:

Apparently these are a rare breed of sheep called Jacob Sheep.

And apparently I am a shite example of farm girls, if I can no longer tell the difference between a cow and a sheep!
