Easter Sheep

This photo has been flying around Facebook, stating that a farmer near Bathgate, Scotland has been dying his sheep with nontoxic dye since 2007 to entertain passing motorists.


While this photo is a clever use of photoshop techniques, I was surprised to hear that it actually does happen, in Scotland for amusement, and in New Zealand to thwart any thieves.  Also has been reported to being used to keep track of flocks.  Obviously not fiber sheep, but it would be fun to get some of this wool.

To Easter dyed sheep.  Would love to see a flock of these one day:
