The aesthetics of Ovis aries

Sheep.png Aside from dealing with Randist Libertarians and various disputes over the naming of anything to do with the British Isles, being a Wikipedia editor ends up being about 75% vandalism reversion. That includes a fair number of people who want to insert various obscenities on Wales and Welsh People in connection with sheep. Given that I thought I might show that aside from nurturing, sheering, killing and eating there are other (non-sexual) activities that can be carried out with sheep.

My thanks to Alicia Juarrero  (author of one of the best books on complexity) for this reference plus lunch, conversation and a lift to Dulles last Thursday. For those interested we talked about running a joint seminar in Washington DC, details here when settled, but any ideas, suggestions, proposals welcome.
