陳百強有首粉紅色的一生，奧克蘭 (紐西蘭) 都有粉紅色的羊咩咩! 唔知農場主人有無犯虐待動物呢？
“Hot pink sheep grazing the countryside north of Auckland are making headlines across the world. The staff at SheepWorld, 65km north of Auckland, regularly colour the sheep with food dye as a gimmick.”…”The 60-strong flock are regularly dyed, depending on how much rain the region has – the dye washes off in the rain.”…
“We started dyeing the sheep a couple of years ago to celebrate a rugby final between Canterbury and Auckland. So we dyed them red and blue the first time,” said manager Lois Grant.

John Collyer, from SheepWorld, said the food colouring they use is completely harmless to the animals and had even been approved by a local vet.
He added: ‘We use food colouring, which eventually washes out in the rain. Sheep are practically colour blind and so would probably not notice if they or other sheep were pink. The dye is harmless so there are no side effects. We have cleared what we do with our local vet.Feedback from visitors is 99 per cent positive. One per cent are concerned about the sheep – normally these people don’t understand the precautions we’ve taken.’
SheepWorld is dubbed an insight into sheep farming in New Zealand.
