Beyond doubt, the grass is greener on the side to which the sheep travels. Admittedly, the increased saturation level is so slight, that it can hardly be imagined worthy of such a crossing. For all sheep kind, however, it appears to be true that gastronomic interest in a given side of the road directly increases with hue. Here’s a graph in case there be any doubt:
The scientific evidence appears to prove the anecdotal case.
