sheep as lawnmowers

Did you know that this is the latest fad in Italy and France? I just heard this on the radio.

This type of sheep is not ideal for meat, and apparently are very picky eaters. They love grass, they don't hop into your garden... A company in Lyon now "rents" them to mow your lawn. It has been such a success that their 220 sheep are fully booked until the end of August. Italy now has over 700 registered sheep-mowers. If you are a bit concerned about them getting adventurous and gastronome, you can also "rent" a shepherd.

I would *maybe* trade in my Gardena push mower for a little woolly friend...
