Everyone knows that sinking feeling you get when you go to grab your keys, purse, cell phone or any other item from its usual place and it's not there. That's exactly the feeling Liezel Kennedy of Pilgrim Farms in Saskatchewan got when she looked out over her farmland and couldn't find her herd ... Yes, she'd lost about 500 sheep.
So, what's someone to do when they lose a large quantity of sheep? Get in the car and search.
Kennedy drove past this part of her land, not knowing that her sheep were actually visible. Can you see them?
She drove past again, closer this time.
Once she was about 50 feet away, she finally spied her ewes.
Sheep aren't exactly known for their camouflaging abilities, but Kennedy's fluffy group certainly blend right into their surroundings.
With the snow covering most normal flora, the sheep match well with the brown weeds that are able to work their way through the blanket of snow.
Once the snow melts, though, Kennedy's job of keeping track of her herd doesn't actually get any easier.
Spring and fall, even with their changing colors and varied landscapes, still provide the sheep with plenty of covert cover.
