This “Shleep Sanctuary” Will Let You Count Actual Sheep to Help You Nap

If you’ve ever had a restless night, you might have tried the “counting sheep” method to help fall asleep. Now, thanks to a new experiment, you could try it for real. Like, with real sheep.

A field in Sussex is launching the “Shleep Sanctuary,” the world’s first ever sheep-counting experience using real animals.

Participants will sleep in a glass dome set in the English hillside, surrounded by a fluffy flock of sheep. Each animal will have a number painted on them, and guests will be encouraged to count each one “before gently drifting off into a blissful slumber beneath the stars.”

The experience isn’t fully available to everyone (yet). Emma Sleep, the company behind the “Shleep Sanctuary,” is still testing things out. However, if you’d like to give it a try you can enter their contest for a chance to sleep among fluffy friends and peaceful hills. Kind of a lot of effort for a nap, but not a baaaa idea.
