Thanks for the response, but what I was looking for was more 3-D, and had a fluffy coat. I can't believe I can't find them anywhere.

I used to make these ! It was just a flat wooden shape of a sheep - painted black with phoney fleece pulled over the body and stuffed with polyfill. The ears were just a single layer of fleece that hung down.I used hot glue on some spots and staples on the other. Boy -- I haven't seen those in a long time. I know there are "online craft malls" .... "and online craft fairs" ... maybe you could check there. I don't think they really had an "official name" ... maybe lawn sheep ?

Thanks Toomuchglass, I think those might be what I'm looking for. I own 4 german shepherds and I thought they should have some sheep to look at. Outside their reach of course.

I used to have a lawn ornament business and we sold the lawn sheep altho I didn't make them. We had another crafter who made the BoPeep that went with it. Simple shape but she used oilcloth (like tablecloth) material on it. It lasted at least 10 years out in all Michigan weather til it fell apart. They'd last longer if I remembered to take them in.
