SAGACITY OF A SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 16 May 1914

SAGACITY OF A SHEEP. Sheep nre not usually" considered sagacious, but the following incident will show that they are not devoid of Intelligence. A ewe gave birth to a lamb which was totally blind.'

One day the farmer was driving the owes and lambs to a field of fresh pasture. Oil the way they had~to crass a small river by a rude bridge that had no railing-or defence of any kind at the side.
