What on earth is going on?

Just seen this on Facebook, I don't really know what to say, actually speechless!

Does anyone know the best place to advertise some very friendly rare breed whethers? They’re just too kind to go for the chop
🙈
. Not sure where to advertise them, they’re perfect for smallholders.

Could be a clever marketing ploy, get twice as much selling them for pets than what they're worth fat?

I shear a few for a good friend whose mum keeps them as pets, she started off with about 15, then the neighbours ram broke in and she ended up with a few more. Then they didn’t ring a wee midget and they ended up with a few more. They topped out around thirty but thankfully old age is starting to thin them out.

It would be best if they choose shedders though.

I've sheared a few pet sheep over the years and they're always terrible, or maybe it's just my bad technique? But they're generally very fat and tame.

1 massive texel x wether was 4, and must have been 150+kg. He was harness trained and sheared standing up.
