Many pet owners like to take funny photos of their furry companions, bringing some good laughs to online users around the world.
An animal farm in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, “Awaji Farm Park England Hill” recently uploaded a post of a grinning sheep. The photo showed the female sheep “Momen” displaying a bright smile, with her eyes squinting into a line.
In the caption, the farm park owners pointed out that Momen smiles “like an angel.”

According to Yahoo Japan news, three-year-old Momen is a “Corriedale”, and the breeder of Awaji Farm said she’s not smiling but actually displaying a “flehmen response.”
The report added that this is one of her physiological reactions, which is performed by lifting her lips to distinguish the scent of other sheep.
The breeder also added that Momen is a quiet, but food-obsessed sheep who usually poses happily in the corner of the hut.
However, as soon as mealtime comes, she becomes dominant and pushes her companions away to enjoy the food alone.
As soon as the post was shared online, it brought along new fans of the sheep, with social media users commenting: “She’s so cute! I wish I could be as happy as she is.”
The breeder later added: “Many people are very happy to know about Momen and our animal farm through this photo. We hope that Momen’s smiling face can bring joy to more people.”
Momen’s lovely smile brings about warmth in people’s hearts and has become a source of motivation and encouragement for those seeking solace from tiring, everyday life.
