Black Sheep Mowers

We Love it.  Paris is employing black sheep to graze the municipal lands, the latest, newest and oldest technology for lawn mowing.  Blessed Be the Beautiful Black Sheep! Benit Etre Les Beaux Moutons Noirs!

Review the story here:

Bertrand Delanoe, Mayor of Paris has employed Black Sheep to mow one of their lawns, the 19th Arondissement.  The species is called “Ouissant”.    (pls forgive our absence of accents; still configuring our keyboard!)  Merci beaucoup, Mayor Delanoe.  :):):)
