Once I heard that a man named Michael Murray of Kye Elphin used to give turnips to sheep to eat. He said that one day he gave the sheep one turnip each. One of the turnips was very big and a sheep ate a hole in it. Then she went into the turnip and stood inside althrough the winter and came out in the Spring with two lambs.
