Whoops! Sorry about that. I meant the sheep.
This breed, originally imported from Spain, has a sort of piebald coat, and I once thought that their name referred to Jacob's multi-coloured coat but I was wrong.
Jacob separated the lambs, and made the flocks face towards the striped
and all the black in the flock of Laban; and he put his own herd apart
and did not put them with Laban's flock.
Genesis Ch 30, verse 40
Well, that's all cleared up...or not.
Jacob's sheep are rather photogenic. Near to Newnham windmill, Northants.
