I was idly googling rams, as you do, and found this link to a Picture Australia
Prize winning Merino .
I like the alternative list of subjects there.
Akubras, graziers, lawns, loudspeakers, ministers (government), overalls.

Couldn't resist clicking on overalls.
Your search for overalls in subject found 133 images

I guess Overalls is as good a classification as any for this 1958 study.

Comments: overall

Woolly for ewe.

Ah, those were the days when rams were rams and men were nervous.

A bit of triva I found about the other day. That ram would have been sheared with the machine developed in Australia by Mr Fred Wolseley, with the assistance of Mr Herbert Austin, who both then moved back to England to become the Wolseley and the Austin of the UK's auto industry.

All among the Wolseley...

a good bit of trivia.
