That Herdwick Gaze
A Video via Quicktime 4

  Herdwicks are the sheep unique to England's Lake District. They're mountain sheep and roam all about.

Among a Herdwick's appealing characteristics is a direct gaze, in which the Herdwick's face has a young-old character, part curiosity, part humor. The Herdwick below does a pretty good double take as well (in the 240K video).


The closeup still on the alternate page shows the gaze better - perhaps - although nothing quite matches the immediacy of a video for the development of the "look."
