"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly."

Bobby Kennedy said that. (1925-1968) Rest his soul.

We, as Liberals, should take that to heart while we push our leader to vote against Bill C-50 tomorrow. Let's all dare to fail.

Now back to my nature blog. Are we being sheared?

Domestic sheep (Ovis aries) are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are even-toed ungulates, also commonly called cloven-hoofed animals. Although the name "sheep" applies to many species, in everyday usage it almost always refers to Ovis aries. Domestic sheep are the most numerous species in their genus, and are most likely descended from the wild mouflon of Europe and Asia.

One of the earliest animals to be domesticated for agricultural purposes, sheep are primarily valued for their fleece and meat. A sheep's wool is the most widely used of any animal, and is typically harvested by shearing. Ovine meat is called lamb when from younger animals and mutton when from older ones. They continue to be important for wool and meat today, and are also occasionally raised for pelts, as dairy animals, or as model organisms for science.

Dream Interpretation Sheep
A sheep may represent some your characteristics like being "soft" , weak and unable to protect yourself. Seeing a flock of sheep is a sign of prosperity due to your humble and diligent work. Shearing a sheep means that you are taking advantage of someone.
