New Zealanders are feeling sheepish over a new postage stamp that shows two lambs with their mother. The mother, however, has a pair of powerful, curled horns which, in reality, are found only on a ram.
The designer of the 45-cent stamp has admitted taking artistic license but said he wanted to make the stamp "more dynamic."
The blunder has not been well received in a land where sheep are considered something of an icon. An estimated 40 million sheep roam the country, vastly outnumbering the human population of just 4 million.
