This is actually really common. There are breeds of sheep that are really good at this sort of thing, local governments bring them in to control overgrowth all the time.

It's actually a business in some areas, I believe.

I've seen this as well but never heard of people or companies using sheep as lawn mowers.

I was just out on my riding sheep-mower this morning. It doesn't have cup holders like my other mower has... but it does have a nice cotton seat on it

This is why you vote. When you don't vote for your city council, these crazy people take over.

my sheep mower might not have cup holders, but it does have a radio in it. I like to mow while listening to baaa-d to the bone.
