I made the sheep-scale as a way to check in on my sheep and wool mates in a fun way, ask #RUOK & actively listen to the answer.

We’re all currently facing unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19, and one of the most important things we can all do is check in with each other.

Beyond Blue

We. like many, have had rural and regional sheep shows cancelled due to COVID-19. These shows are sometimes the only time we see each other and have been unable to have that personal contact after months of fire, flood and drought in Australia, and now COVID. I’m a little different in that I’m based in a city region that has me locked down for a second time. This time, to only a 5km area.

I don’t usually create these kinds of things.. (“Memes” I’ve been told). But I’m hearing that this one has grown legs. Also had a serious fan-girl moment seeing it got a share from North Wales farming identity — Gareth Wyn Jones!

Sheep #5 & Sheep #6

Blossom the gorgeously flower-glam #6: Unfortunately, I was mortified to learn I had used a copyrighted image but was very glad to learn that the owner had no issue as it was to promote wool. Thank you to Sara Dunham (Instagram @thecrazysheeplady and Props to Sara for also picking up which one wasn’t a sheep – added to really summarise how I was feeling. Sara also created the (Inter)National Hug A Sheep Day which is always the last Saturday in October – add it to your calendar!

I’m using this as an opportunity to get to know someone else as passionate about sheep and wool from another part of the world, north central Kentucky!

Sleepy sheep #5: Hails from Mrs. Dowson’s Farm Park in Blackburn, United Kingdom. They produce their own award winning icecream from their own dairy cows! They also do lambing live and nature walks. I wish I’d known about this place during my UK visit but so glad that it is on my radar now.

  1. Hi there
    I live in on the island of Anglesey, off the coast of North Wales and I saw your sheep-scale on Facebook. It made me laugh, so I shared it with the women in my family and some friends, who are all crocheters. It kept us entertained all morning!

  3. Found your sheet scale on a mental health charity’s facebook page called the DPJ foundation. I’d like to use it for an internal publication within our company as the DPJ foundation is our charity of the year and we’re dealing with mental health for the latest edition

  4. I’m in California, USA and I found your sheep scale when I googled, “Which are you today?” as I do this a lot to look for these scales to check in with my middles schoolers during distance learning. Thanks!

  5. Thank you Sam,

    This is great! I came across your sheep scale on the website of some new connections. I used it in my TGIF post on LinkedIn.

    btw I grew up on a dairy farm in Eastern Ontario, Canada, and can relate to the challenges you face.
    Wish you all the best!

  6. Hi Sam,
    May I have your permission to use the sheep scale on welcoming or ice-breaker slides for my workshops and classes? To be very honest, I have already been using it (with proper acknowledgement) and participants love it! Fellow workshop facilitators also asked when I found the sheep scale.
