| ;) And you are right Krautrock: In April 1991 or April 1990(have to check this) i was inside this great passage grave. I was 1,83m then. Just when i was about to leave the chamber a sheep was looking inside it from the entrance. It quickly disappeared after recognizing me. I hurried to get out. And then I had to be very quick. A sheep stampede arrived from the other side of the large fenced area. With horns down and obviously very aggressive. Luckily i reached the fence first. Probably it was because they had lambs. Not sure though. Have never seen such aggressive sheep again.|
| :-O! Where are you have not been? Good sheep-story. I never heard about aggressive sheep. Next time I will be careful about all animals in a crowd. |

| In 1989-1993 I visited approx. 200 megalithic sites in Denmark (esp. Jutland). So there still are thousands left....;) |
I was irritated of the sheeps' behaviour too. After they followed me some of the rams clashed their horns against the wooden fence where I was standing. Luckily I was on the other site then. I am not an expert, but they really seemed angry. So I am not very concerned about cows, but after this experience with sheep I am a bit careful when they have lambs.
