A guy on his way to work each day walks past a farmers field with 1 sheep in it, after a week or so when walking past, he notices the same sheep but with only 3 legs. The next day whilst walking past he sees the farmer also in the field and askes him, why has the sheep only got 3 legs. The farmer tells him, this sheep is an amazing animal, smart beyond belief, last week i got stuck under one of the farming machines whilst doing repairs, the sheep ran over, lifted the farm machine off my leg and dragged me clear, what an amazing creature, the man thinking he would be late for work thought, oh well and continued to work.
A few days later, again the man seen the farmer in the field and thought he would ask again. The farmer said, this sheep is amazing, a Fox came close to the chicken pen, the sheep ran over and chased the fox away, what a brave little sheep. Again without an answer, the man left on his way to work.
2 Days later the man was passing and seen that the same sheep now had only two legs, but was getting around well, he thought, i am early for work today so i am going to ask the farmer outright about the sheep's missing legs. He knocks on the farmhouse door and asks the farmer again, why has the sheep now got two legs when last week it had 3, and before that it had all 4 legs. The farmer again tells the man how this sheep is amazing, this time telling a tale of a few missing cows, missing for two days and thought lost, but out went the sheep and within one hour herded the missing cows back to there Pen and safety, what a wonderful sheep again said the farmer. The man raises his voice a little and askes the farmer , i understand this is a truly amazing sheep, but please tell me why he has missing legs when earlier he did not, The farmer looked him right in the eyes and told the man, when you have a sheep that is so smart, so brave, and so resourceful as this sheep, You Wouldn't Eat Him All At Once, would you. That would be stupid.
