Ed and Dog Ed Wallace

"I kinda read a sheep's mind. Their brain's not in their head but in their stomach. If they got a full stomach they got a good brain, they're contented.

Greediness makes a leader. If they think there's a flower or a plant up there ahead and they don't get to it first they won't get any. You can hit real lush feed like a mountain meadow and they can be full but they're not satisfied 'till they run clear over it. They'll mash more feed down than they'll eat. A sheep is an awful greedy animal. They're actually more a glutton than a hog."
