Sheep ‘take over’ Hobbit homes in NZ

A flock of sheep has reportedly moved into the empty Hobbit homes constructed in Matamata, New Zealand for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.

Images from various social networking sites reposted on Kuriositas show the creatures moving in and around the Hobbit holes, 17 of the original 37 of which have been preserved as a tourist attraction.

The homes themselves are empty, as all internal shots of Hobbiton in Peter Jackson’s award-winning trilogy were filmed in studios.

Fans of the films can book a two-hour guided visit to the working farm with Hobbiton Movie Set & Farm Tours, with refreshments available at The Shires Rest Cafe.
