The ones that got away…

Out of the 70 Shauns across Bristol we managed to capture 62 of them.

These are the eight we missed. Luckily other people managed to capture them on film.

We did in fact find 12. Bumble but we were driving pass and decided it wasn’t safe to stop and we would go back at some point, we never did.


Over on Henleaze Road was 14. The Tale of Peter Rabbit™ a somewhat scary looking rabbit-sheep hybrid.

The very 1970s looking 15. Groovy Baby!

We had intended to visit Ashton Court to see 16. Buttercup and 17. Flora but it was pouring with rain on the two days we thought we might have time to do this. So both sheep were missed. Buttercup was in the courtyard next to the cafe.


17. Flora was also at Ashton Court, up by the Golf Club.


32. Sparkles the Unicorn was hiding away on Horfield Common, what stopped us was the sheer amount of traffic around Bristol, on what should have been a quiet day for vehicles.

Looking very tasty is 33. Star Bake next to the Boston Tea Party on the Gloucester Road,

Another one where the amount of traffic contributed to missing them, this time it was 34. Primrose at St Werburgh’s City Farm.

In the end we ran out of time…

Yesterday saw the end of the great Shaun the Sheep hunt.

In the end we managed to find and photograph 62 out of 70.

A combination of weather and traffic in the end stopped us from completing the challenge. Thoiugh we did do it, it wasn’t that much fun to trudge through the rain and the mud finding Shauns. Also we had to go to Bristol to do it, and the M5 was too often a slow moving car park.

Over the next week or so I will post the photographs of the Shauns we did managed to capture.

There is an opportunity to see them all (with the London Shauns) in both Bristol and Covent Garden over September.

They’re everywhere…

Though the Shauns have now left the centre of Bristol, I am still catching up posting my photographs of the ones I managed to capture with my camera.

They seemed to get everywhere, outside the Bus Station was 53. Lamb Chop, a clever Shaun, similar to the diagrams you find in recipe books, but all the “cuts of meat” are named after areas of Bristol.

I thought Southveal was clever, as was Westbury on Trymmings.

Outside the Children’s Hospital was 52. Maisy and Friends covered in pictures from the Maisy books.

The 62. Honey was next to St Stephen’s Church, and was surrounded by mud.

It has also started to rain, so a quick photo, which I think could have been better.

What more soggy Shauns?

As you can see from the fair few blog posts, last Sunday in the rain we managed to find and photograph a fair few Shaun the Sheeps.

Outside the Victoria Rooms was 31. Flock ‘n Roll, a celebration of British music and pop culture.

As well as the union jack paintwork, this Shaun has some badges on him as well.

Despite the rain we went hunting Shauns last Sunday.

Over by the back of Park Row next to the Bristol Grammar School we have 29. Thunderbirds Are Go, with Shaun masquerading as Thunderbird 2.

This Shaun has blue LEDs that light up at night, as we were there in the day we didn’t see them. This Shaun is surrounded by mirrors, not sure why, as there aren’t that many hidden details. I like the pointed nose though, which is strange as Thunderbird 2’s nose isn’t pointed!

Outside the Royal West of England Academy we have 30. Rex. This is either Shaun dressed up as a dinosaur…

…or is it a dinosaur which has swallowed Shaun!

Up on Brandon Hill is 26. From Dusk ‘til Shaun who, as it was quite wet, was surrounded by mud. He is very bight and colourful taking in both night and day imagery.

43. Lotus is outside the offices of the place which started all of this so long ago…

…of course we’re talking about Aardman Animations. Looking very much like a Chinese Ming vase, this ornate blue and white Shaun stands guard outside the very offices of the company that created him.
