It’s a cloud, that is curled… it’s Sheepworld!

NZ is known for a lot of things like the most isolated western country and the first western man known to climb Mount Everest in 1953 (though the expedition was funded by the UK so they might take credit). But it is also known for sheep, lots of sheep. Once they had over 80 million sheep in NZ but its petro-based synthetic counterpart has decreased the price of real wool to almost half the producing cost and thereby less sheep are being kept. Even though it is a superior product, consumers tend to choose the petro-carpet instead of the toxin-free, almost inflammable natural wool that will long outlast the first. The tradition of sheep farming lives on and they offer shows at Sheepworld. Sheepworld also has other animals and it’s a great place for kids.

Olivia got to give the sheep a haircut! She got to keep the wool she’s holding.
