Sheep take over Hobbit Village in New Zealand

A farm in Matamata, New Zealand, was the setting for the Hobbit village featured in the Lord of the Rings films. At the farm owner’s request, some of the hobbit homes were left on the farm once filming was complete. The plan was to create a small tourist attraction named Hobbiton, but the ubiquitous Kiwi sheep had other ideas. They’ve moved in. [photos by Miss Rogue and Rob & Jules]
