Abandoned Hobbiton from “Lord Of The Rings” taken over by sheep

The Lord of the Rings movies are well known all over the world, and so is the village Hobbiton where the Hobbits in the trilogy were living.The beautiful little houses surrounded by amazing nature were located in Matamata in New Zealand during filming, and they still are.

Now the Hobbit houses are used by a farm nearby. More precisely their sheep have moved into the village where they are using the hobbit houses. Nowadays you can get a tour around in Hobbiton to see the famous Hobbit cabins and also pet the lambs.

Speaking of sheep, in Scotland a farmer has painted his sheep in bright colors to “spice things up”.

Daughter, sister, wife, mother and writer. I spend half of my free time writing and the other half reading contemporary literature. I like to start my day with half an hour of yoga and then I head over to my desk with a cup of green tea to start working on my sci fi novel. On weekends I like to head over to the country side for a breath of fresh air and to catch up with my mom.
