Denys McCracken: Daft Laddie Days - Nee teeth man!
By Denys McCracken
Nee teeth man!
Many people used to go for a walk up the valley and when we were clipping some more Americans stopped to watch. They asked if the sheep ever bit the clipper so quick as a flash, Geordie pointed at some rusty old pliers on the wall and said that he pulled out all their teeth while I held them. They did not believe him so he opened the sheep's mouths to be shown no teeth in their top jaw!
(Sheep, cattle and all ruminants have no top teeth!)
