Monster sheep dubbed XL Woolly ‘look like they’re on protein shakes’ and terrify internet

The UK is still reeling from a series of XL Bully attacks, and now its cowering citizens have been warned the breed’s sheep cousins could soon start flocking over

That's a rather large sheep (stock)

A breed of sheep that looks remarkably like an XL Bully has left the internet in a mixture of fear and hysterics.

The Texel is a breed of sheep native to the Netherlands, but people think it looks like the large dogs that have been grabbing headlines closer to home. The unusual-looking farm animal, with its bulky frame and square head, looks a lot like the undefined breed that has been terrorising the UK in recent months.

Like the XL Bully the sheep have long, bulky bodies and stumpy, short legs, much like a bodybuilder who has spent a lot of time training their upper half.

The texel is a serious bit of kit

This uncanny likeness has led one person on the social media platform X, formally known as Twitter, to make the rather charming joke the odd-looking sheep should be called an XL Woolley.

The post quickly went viral after another user shared four pictures of Texels with the caption: “Absolutely losing my s*** at this breed of sheep called texel sheep.”

What a magnificent beast (stock)

While Texel Bully also has a nice ring to it, people in the comments have been quick to note these sheep are pleasant creatures and have carried out fewer fatal attacks.

One commenter said: “We have a Texel tup (ram/boy sheep) called Thrusty Clappernuts. He is a Good Boy”. Others were less convinced. “I wouldn’t wanna mess with the XL Woolly Hard Crew,” one person said.

One person got involved with the gym references, and commented: “I don’t know if they were this breed but walking around Castleton in the Peak District I saw sheep that looked like they’d been on the protein shakes.”

By contrast, XL Bullies in the UK don’t have such a good reputation. Last month Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced plans to outlaw the beasts following a disturbing “pattern of behaviour”.

If the ban comes into force they will be the fifth type of dog to be made illegal in the UK.
