Weathervane Wednesday ~ Baa, Baa, Black Sheep!

I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #275?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Today's weathervane was photographed in the historic district of Bedford, New Hampshire.  This house with an attached barn features a cupola with a sheep weathervane.  It's interesting, but the Bedford Village Inn also has a large sheep weathervane, and its located very nearby.  This weathervane is difficult to photograph because it is near so many telephone and power lines, but I finally took a good shot between the wires.  It was a windy day, so it took a lot of waiting for the sheep to turn "just right".

The historic district of Bedford has many weathervanes and is worth a drive through if you are a fan.  Check out the residences, and also the Presbyterian church and the public library.

There is another sheep weathervane nearby, on top of the Bedford Village Inn, which I posted two years ago at this link:
