You’ve heard of a monkey on your back…

This sheep, in a pen behind the historic Wortley Hotel in Lincoln, NM, has a guest on its back, which according to the owners of the hotel, spends a lot of time there. The chicken, which is one of several that provides eggs for guest breakfasts, apparently gets along fine with the sheep, which seems content with the arrangement as well. I guess you could call the combination a “sheepicken.”

The Wortley is an excellent base for a couple of days of exploring Lincoln County and historic old Lincoln, where outlaw Billy the Kid staged a shootout in a daring escape during the Lincoln County War. Unfortunately, it is temporarily closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
