Beta the sheep insists she's just one of the flock. But is she? Modest, unassuming and with a piquant sense of humor, this ewe has secrets that surprised even us! Our correspondent Eslie Walsh met with Beta in her field an hour north of San Francisco.
EW: Beta, how did you come by that name?
EW: In the original Greek, no less. I'm impressed. Tell us about a typical day for you.
ö Beta's Favorite color: Ecru
EW: The very break of dawn. I'm tired just thinking about it. Now, we all know how important it is to eat a diet high in fiber, but really, doesn't that take a lot of willpower? Don't you ever long for Belgian chocolate or a foamy cappuccino?
EW: A triple latte. No wonder you have so much energy. What about your love life? I've heard there's someone special.
EW: Deny it if you like, but I think we've all seen the pictures. Patch is a border collie, isn't that right? A working dog. I've heard Patch herds goats, too. Is that true? How does that make you feel?
EW: Ouch! Well, thank you very much for your time. It's been delightful.
