Then Peter opened his moujth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. Acts 10:34-35
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. Romans 10:12
Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God. Doctrine and Covenants 18:10
A few posts back there were pictures I had taken of a farm animal that I wasn't sure whether it was a sheep or a goat. Along with it was a commentary philosophising that the animal with the biggest horns wouldn't really know he was the best of the bunch as far a horns go, so he wouldn't go around all puffed up with ego and pride. A scientific daughter commented that those in the animal kingdom DO know who is top whatever depending on how many females they attract. Hum, not so different than humans? Still, my original point can be well taken. We aren't so different on the inside, no matter what is on the outside. We ARE all equal in the sight of God. It was wistful thinking to dream that the world would suddenly change and we could all be nice to one another as we realize the worth of each soul . . .

Generally referred to as an "unimproved" or "heirloom" breed (one that has survived with little human selection), the Jacob is descended from an ancient Old World breed of sheep, although its exact origins remain unclear. Spotted polycerate sheep were documented in England by the mid-17th century, and were widespread a century later. Unlike most other old world breeds, the Jacobs of North America have not undergone extensive cross-breeding and selective breeding; their body habitus resembles that of a goat. Relative to their American counterparts, British Jacobs tend to be larger and heavier, and have lost many of their original characteristics through artificial selection." Soooo, it you want to know more about this different kind of sheep, check it out by typing in "black and white sheep with horns."
