Until you think about the logistics--getting the sheep onto a small boat,
keeping them from bleating, getting them to *stay in* the small boat.  I was
thinking of the Monty Python sketch in which a shepherd is trying to teach
sheep to live in trees, the best line of which is, "They don't so much
perch...as plummet."
