Slowly Walking Bales of Wool

These enormous wooly sheep graze slowly in a small pasture near a docile milk cow and what might be her grown up calf.  The sheep move as slowly as galleons on a horizon.
Muffled in layers and layers of dense, greasy-looking wool, they seem impervious to icy winds and to snow dumping on their heads and backs.
They nose into the snow and find occasional blades of grass, occasionally huddle together around the hay bale opened out in a manger.

  1. years ago my black sheep looked like this, but snow added to their bulk until they gave a good shake and moved.
