Surprised by sheep

Getting out of the one school in Dang village 党家村, I was startled by a noise that sounded like a bunch of people arguing loudly. But I couldn’t quite make out what was being said. At first I thought it was because they were speaking some local dialect. Suddenly it dawned on me that it might have been some animal baa’ing.

Trying to trace the source of the noise, I poked my head through the open door of this courtyard. The courtyard was empty but the noise got louder. Before too long, this woman came through those doors to the left. And I caught a glimpse of some sheep behind those doors. I begged her to let me look at the sheep. It turned out she was quite friendly and simply told me to just help myself.

Opening the doors, I came face to face with this curious creature, who stared at me as if I was some alien from outer space. I was also bombarded with very loud baa’s. There were some 40 sheep there, with many lambs among them. Honestly, I do not know why people like lambs. To me, puppies and kittens are much cuter.

There was just one unfriendly ram. Perhaps it was threatened because I was male? But how could it tell? The woman said they just need one ram, for obviously reasons, I guess.

Most of the time, most of them just stared at me with unblinking eyes. It seemed that the only time that they were not staring at me, they were eating. It was hard to tell whether anything was happening behind those eyes.

They can be sold at seven reminbi for a catty, which is about half a kilogram. Each sheep weights about 70 catties. So you can easily figure out how much each sheep is worth. And how much for the whole flock. It is quite a bit of money.

Lambs are okay when they are clean. And they are good to eat, too :-P

What kind of favorable publicity do you think
you'd get from a once-a-month letter in your local publication. Egyptian cotton bedding has become the popular choice of many savvy consumers. Now, many Indian advertising agencies begin to pay more attention to Indian Hindi news and this can be led to the increase in revenue generation. Assemble your guests in teams, set out clues and people to actually talk to. " Despite Saudi assurances of textbook reform, the May 2006 Freedom House report entitled "Saudi Arabia's Curriculum of
Intolerance" reveals that the teaching of hatred continues.

This makes the mixing phase a lot easier, just put in your concrete
and water, and off you go by the wheelbarrow load. Despite the
fact that it uses concrete, an unfriendly environmental
material, it has a few advantages over tires and shares most of the earthship advantages.
This Wednesday night there is a lot going on in Atlanta.

The Regional Animal Hospital in Yorba Linda is well equipped
to handle the emergencies. Unlike many other medical facilities, the
Fayette Chiropractic Center offers walk-in therapy.
Also like many single parents, Sebastiao is hoping to

have such health problem for long and unchecked.
