As I'm sure you must know, New Zealand is a country known for it's sheep... white sheep that is... not pink! So as you could imagine, I was more than amused when during a road trip through Warkworth New Zealand I spotted a hill full of bright PINK sheep!
Being a vegetarian myself, I love animals (alive, not dead) so I couldn't help but ask Cam to pull over and let me take a few photos so I could show my friends and family back home. I'm still not sure if they were painted this color because they were due to see the butcher (God, I hope not!) or purely for the entertainment of passer-by's like myself...personally, I feel a bit sorry for them- I mean- what if they wanted to be white? Apparently the web-definition for pink sheep is "One who has disgraced his or her family by betraying their working-class roots by maintaining a yuppie and often metropolitan or metrosexual lifestyle" (or in simpler terms...Gay) Huh. Whatever the reason, I thought you might enjoy my snap-shots.
