April The Year of the Sheep Giveaway

Here we are again...time for more Year of the Sheep fun. Let's say Congratulations to our three March winners:
Prize pack #1 Dawn Cavenee
Prize pack #2 Jamie Lynn Lester​
Prize pack #3 Jo Jones​

Time for the April Year of the Sheep giveaway
There are special entries for sheeples who go that extra mile to prove their love. You can sheepify a picture. If you are still confused about what or how to do this check out two of our followers ideas!
(left) Joleene Naylor sheepified three of her vampire characters! (in all fairness, she is also an artist. We don't expect this level of sheepifying from everyone <G>)
(right) Mary Kirkland took a pic of her rattie Marbles and Baaart!

And last month...the poems. Oh my flocking goodness! Y'all came through. Here are two:

Some lambs bounce and buck
through the frosty air
of a new spring dawn,
while others bay woefully
for the warmth of their mothers
and resist the call to dance.

-Sheeple Brenda R

Keep your wolves and aimless drifters--
I want books with some sheep shifters!
You don't need a psychic's channelin'
To know that sheep are smooth as lanolin.
Perhaps now that I've said my peace,
I'll see more heroes clad in fleece.
When that happens I'll be glad,
For sheepish souls just can't be...baaaaaaaaaad!

-Sheeple Koozebane
