Not sure where to post this, but the sheep from the Highland Stables made another appearance, this time in the San Marco plaza, on Monday afternoon. They obviously aren't concerned about letting them in a main thoroughfare, as they were even doing photos ops with the staffs.

You'd be surprised what animals they walk around the park. I know previously they walked pigs around the park in the very early hours of the day before the park opened. But the animals are very well trained to handle guests. They aren't as dangerous as wolves.

On Nessie's b-day, they had a billy goat loose in the Wildlife Reserve. We watched them try to chase and catch the animal, it was quite hilarious.

I saw that too! When I saw him, they were already at the Highland Stables. He just kept on running. If I'm not mistaken I think they actually had to call for backup, so they could corner him. I bet the goat had fun, but I bet the animal trainers were worn out after that shenanigan.:)

[split] Verbolten

They actually mention the sheep and Verbolten during the Collies and Clydesdales tour. Grazing to trim the grass on that steep of a slope is the reason they are in both locations by Verbolten. Found it interesting but yet very ingenious to use what comes naturally to the sheep to take care of mowing on the steep slopes at Verbolten.
