    World record: $347,000 for a sheep

    LONDON — A British farmer who paid a world record price for a sheep says the animal is the finest specimen he has ever seen, with "a great body and strong loin."

    Jimmy Douglas shelled out 231,000 pounds ($347,000) for the 8-month-old Texel ram called Deveronvale Perfection at an annual sale in Lanark, Scotland.

    The British Texel Sheep Society says the fee paid Thursday eclipses the 205,000 pounds paid in Australia in 1989.

    Society member John Yates says the ram will likely father pedigree lambs worth millions of dollars for his new owner.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    That's a lot of money for a sheep when he could have just met one through this site:

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
