Sheep With Five Legs in Saudi
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Monday, November 11, 2013

Posted on 11/11/2013 11:32:39 AM PST by nickcarraway

Farmers offer large sums of money but the owner refuses to sell it

A sheep was born with five legs in Saudi Arabia and became the only farm animal in that region to survive a year after it was born.

The sheep was born in the northern town of Rafha and farmers who know its owner told him it would not survive a few days.

“They told me it would die a few days after it was born as animals with deformities do not normally live long,” said its owner Fahd Al Shammari.

“Now the sheep is around one year old and it is very strong and healthy…it can control its fifth leg while standing but it has to stretch it forward when it walks because it is shorter than the other legs,” he said Sabq newspaper.

He said many farmers who had predicted its death has just offered to buy the sheep for a large sum of money but that he refused to sell it.

You can bet there is a lot of muslims lining up and wanting to give up their oil royalties to be the first to bang that poor thing.

Reminds me the time Boudreaux was raising 3 legged chickens.

Thibodeaux asked him what they tasted like, and Boudreaux said, “I don’t know, dey are too fast. We haven’t been able to catch any of dem yet.”

The sheep has evolved to outrun the newer, faster Arabs.

The critter’s mama was owned by a 3 legged muzzie. Strong family resemblance.

Sheep with Five Legs
Tune: "Horse with No Name"
By Arabia

I've been through the desert with a sheep with five legs
It felt better than bacon and eggs
In the desert you can drive in your tent pegs
'Cause there ain't no one, and a sheep never begs

Allah, lah, lah, lah, lah . . .
