21-year-old Liberty May from Marwood, Devon, is the proud owner of a Valais Blacknose sheep named Wilbur. Said to be the cutest sheep breed in the world, the Valais Blacknose originates from Switzerland. However, little Wilbur is anything but another ordinary sheep. In fact, this cute little guy tends to act more like a dog than a sheep.
According to Liberty, Wilbur has a tendency to be very stubborn and overdramatic at times. In addition, this little sheep very much insists on always getting his way. Despite everything, Liberty does admit that her sheep is actually quite kind and gentle.
“He does love me I think,” Liberty muses.
Both Liberty and Wilbur are well known in their town. The pair are often seen going on walks together since Wilbur is trained on a leash. Another favorite activity of Wilbur’s is playing fetch with the family dog and snuggling up on the couch.
Since Liberty helps her dad out with the lambs, occasionally she gets to keep a few of them. She has said that the bond she shares with Wilbur is the type of bond that someone would forge with a dog. Liberty sees Wilbur as a pet and loves that he smiles a lot.
“He’s a very domesticated type of sheep breed,” she states.
“So he will just want cuddles and all that affection like a dog would.”
