I said:::"Oh, My! I thought at first that it was a photo of a snowfall onto a rocky, lumpy field! OMG, they are SHEEP! lol!" She said:::"in Scotland...I've been stopped on rural Scottish roads many times by flocks of sheep. It teaches you patience!"

Has to be New Zealand ! This "sea of wool" just makes me smile. Who'd a thunk that a whole bunch of these mangy beasts could keep big powerful cars from going from A to B destination-wise? It's the power of numbers at work.

Following the shepherd.

Bollocks to the info presented here....the kilt has been worn for millennia not since the 16th century....Hmmm thats interesting ....and to add to that tartan cloth has been found in ancient egyptian tombs....add to that that an ancient egyptian princess named Scota lent her name to the land that now calls itself Scotland...Fact.

The History of the Kilt. Another fun Infographic from the Highland Store, this one explaining the history of the kilt. Never call it a skirt!
