How he was able to get the sheep to make the heart shape

According to @goodnews_movement on Instagram, Ben made several trials before he succeeded in the act as it was difficult to get the animals to make the shape.

He eventually succeeded by what he described as 'strategic feeding.'

Mixed reactions trail the video

"@amberrwoods @abigailclements no pressure but when I die please can you arrange for one of these sheep hearts in dedication to your auntie. Please & Thanks."

Elephant makes beautiful painting of itself

Meanwhile, previously reported that a video of an elephant making a painting of itself had gone viral.

The mammal, in a clip shared on Facebook by Goin' Through, stood before a drawing board as it was handed a painting brush by an unidentified man.

In a masterly fashion, as if it were a human artist, the elephant started with a line. What seemed like a disorganised connection of lines turned out to be the artwork of an elephant.

The animal artist painted without being aided. It used its trunk to hold the brush in the 13-minutes display.
