Hey look! mounds of wool!
Tired of election stuff? Here’s one more president-related thing… with sheep!
There were sheep that grazed on the White House lawn during Wilson’s administration. To cut groundskeeping costs during World War I, President Woodrow Wilson (1913-21) brought a flock of sheep to trim the White House grounds. Included in the flock was Old Ike, a tobacco-chewing ram.
Funny, eh? I wonder where the clipped wool ended up. I also wonder if, in addition to the calls for a vegetable garden on the White House lawn, we could get the Obama administration to bring back the sheep.
