Friendly Sheep

Download the latest version of our popular desktop toy and enjoy constant companionship through those lonely computing hours.

If you have previously downloaded the sheep you will need to uninstall the old version first to ensure you enjoy problem free grazing.

Also now available - our new game Sheeps featuring the adventures of your favourite purple character.

You might make her dance or run but be careful, upset her and she may leave an unwanted present behind.

By right clicking you can make her run, walk, dance, baah or jump. If you pick her up she panics. Drop her and she'll fall to the bottom of your desktop or land on top of the window below her. Put a window in front of her and she will skid to a halt or crash into it.

We've added more special features but you must find those yourself, so don't be sheepish, download your friendly ewe now ...

What's Yours Called? Don't forget to name your sheep and send us an e-mail to tell us what that name is and why you have called her that. We'll put the best on the site (with some editing where necessary).

Here's some ideas we had: Ewnice, Ewing, Baabara, Bambo. Hope you can do better ...
