    Idioms: sheep

    It's known to be gentle and soft, shy, humble...  but to have neither will-power nor discriminating


    intelligence. It follows a "leader", and too bad if this leader isn't really wise...

    Yet, you may have fun counting whole flocks of sheep to go to sleep... 





     To make sheep's eyes at somebody 
     To separate the sheep from the goats                                                                           

     To follow each other like sheep/ They are like a flock of sheep

     A wolf in a sheep's clothing 
     The black sheep of the family... 
     A sheepdog
     A lost/ stray sheep 




    - A lazy sheep thinks its wool heavy

    - Death devours lambs as well as sheep

    - Shear the sheep but don't flay them

    - Better to lose the wool than the sheep




    - Better be hanged for a sheep than a lamb...

    - A bleating sheep loses a mouthful... 

    - The sheep is in the sheepfold

    - It's a foolish sheep that makes the wolf his confessor




    Don't count too many... and remain concentrated for the test... It's not difficult at all! Go for it, 

    and thanks for working with me!
