A quick snack

Even sheep can enjoy salty fast-food.

Salt er snadder det! Smart med saltstein, tenk alle de kaloriene vi kunne spart. Det er ikke selve potetene i potegullet som jeg higer etter, men saltet. En bit, og jeg er hekta. Så slikt er best å holde seg unna ... her ser vi løsningen :)

God helg!

Nobody has told the sheep about health warnings on salt; just us humans.

Oh sheep will eat anything!

Neat how you captured it with it's head twisted.

Malyss said...

It's so much bêêêêtter to eat that way! :o)

Haha! A wonderfully appealing shot...this makes me remember the old salt licks in our pasture that we put out for the cows. I'm all smiles over this :)

Anne said...

Det er varmen det vettu Rune :-))))
Tropevarmen gjør jo at vi får lyst og behov for salt enten vi går på to eller fire føtter.

Håper nå du koser deg uansett vær!

Klem

I know that farmers put out salt blocks for their cattle so I am not surprised that sheep crave salt too. This is mostly cattle country, not many sheep.

Funny contradictions. Rough ground, neat sheep - complete with green collar. Old fashioned scene with traditional salt lick - and modern pole. Surprising how many things to see in a picture of ordinary rural life.

Salt is so good . . . Sometimes I put a little on my bread, among other things. I wonder if sheep are supposed to watch it the way we are. lol

Gry said...

Som Irene sa, kunne ha vært en ide for andre også!

Salty the sheep.

VALKYRIEN said...

De trenger vel litt salt i varmen ja - smart det der!

Animals certainly like salt licks. This little one seems to be in sodium heaven.

Barbara Martin said...

It's great to watch animals at a salt/mineral lick. I really like the goat.

The salt blocks are available here for farm animals and for deer and wild animals. Even small animals like to have a lick now and then. This is a really nice photo of this sheep having his daily dose of salt.
