Lots of them around here and always in the road.  Have removed a gang of neighbour A's ewes from my drive twice this past week (fenced both sides, cattle grid top and bottom but they've learned to navigate the grid), and one of neighbour B's ewe lambs is in the pasture with mine after I found her in the garden on my way out to an appointment.  Of course neighbour A also has possession of two of neighbour D's Shetland lambs that escaped my field a month ago and got rounded up with his.  At some point we will all swap back.

My favourite was last year when one Welsh ewe with triplets had them all bedded down sleeping in the middle of the road, with her looking on benevolently.  I think she decided three was too much!
