So after they harvest the opium poppies, the farmers turn their sheep into the paddocks to graze on the stubble. The harvesters don't get all the poppy heads, so some end up on the ground, which occasionally a sheep eats, naturally. The result:

That's so funny! The sheep even looks smiling!

How does the old saying go?
"Sometimes I sits and thinks"
"And some times, I just sits...."
:)

Guess these ones need to be hung a bit longer than normal before they're safe enough to be turned into chops & joints...

The shot's not the best 'cos I was laughing so hard. :D And before someone accuses - no, there was no Photoshopping here, just a sheep tripping.

very funny... What happened afterwards?
I know a few vegetarians who may turn back to meat if the sheep stays long enough in this field.

After this it opened its eyes, got up and staggered away when some other sheep came wandering past, which is also why I wasn't able to get a closer shot.

A while ago, I visited a winery where the processed grape skins were discarded in an adjoining cow paddock. The cows loved the skins but the skins made them really tipsy. Didn't have a camera, unfortunately.

After a few glasses I find it difficult enough to coordinate two legs - I can't imagine how difficult it would be to coordinate four legs.

A very funny photo and story to go with it. Thanks for posting Fred. It brings back the tale of my grandfather who won a bottle of port wine in a raffle and as a non port drinker he tipped the contents into the hens water with similar outcomes to your neighbours sheep. My grandmother told me that even their clucking sounded most strange. A month or two later my aunt fed the same hens Epsom salts to help make the hens lay better - with even stranger results! Funny what an image causes one to remember sometimes!
