Why did the sheep cross the road Writing Prompt


Writing prompt from Sue Vincent

So, in 100 words or less… what do you think is going on here?

What I think is going on here is the sheep is returning to the hole in the fence, to get back where it should be.

People say that sheep are dumb, they can’t see any further than their nose, you can have a gate open, the sheep can be standing right in front of it, but are they going to go through it?

Just watch dog trails on the TV .

Sheep when they get somewhere they shouldn’t be, they know how to get back to where they came from.

  1. I think the sheep’s off to solving a mystery… 😉
    Well, I admit that I must always think about the book Glenkill (Leonie Swann) when seeing sheep…


  2. I once read a science article that said sheep are actually pretty smart and have an incredible ability to recognize faces and other personal attributes. What makes them appear “stupid” is the fact that they tend to be conformists (always following the flock, but the “alpha males” aren’t very good leaders).
    (Just something I read; being from a city, I don’t get to spend a lot of time around sheep.)
