HINTS:
• "sheepishly" is important. Think about the root of this word.
• Each section of blocks is a row, not a column.
• The rows are not arrainged in sequential order. You need to put the words together before you look at the last picture.
• "what's left over" is also key. The left over letters must be arranged in the order the corresponding rows go together.
SOLUTION:
1. Notice the words "sheepishly", "flock", and "herd"
2. Look up breeds of sheep. The website http://www.ansi.okstate.edu is the easiest Google solution.
3. Anagram each section of blocks to a breed of sheep. You will have one letter and a bunch of spaces left over:
1. STCROIX, 2 spaces, leftover C
2. KATAHDIN, 1 space, leftover I
3. DORPER, 3 spaces, leftover O
4. BARBADO, 2 spaces, leftover R
5. WILTSHIRE, 0 spaces, leftover L
6. MERINO, 3 spaces, leftover N
7. RABOLARGO, 0 spaces, leftover G
8. SHETLAND, 1 space , leftover A
9. BALWEN, 3 spaces, leftover A
10. MOUFLON, 2 spaces, leftover L
11. AFRICANA, 1 space , leftover C
Obviously CIORLNGAALC is not the answer.
4. Arrange the assembled rows. You'll need the pictures now, for the matching nubs and notches. There are 4 types, flat, square, pointed, and downward.
• You'll need to get the spacing right. This is easier to do as you go.
• solution (note [] means empty block):
 R A B O L A R G O G M E R I N O [] [] [] N [] K A T A H D I N I W I L T S H I R E L [] [] M O U F L O N L D O R P E R [] [] [] O [] [] S T C R O I X C [] S H E T L A N D A B A R B A D O [] [] R [] B A L W E N [] [] A A F R I C A N A [] C
5. Arrange the left over letters in the order that the corresponding rows go together. This gives you the answer, CARACOLLING.
