Sheep is one of the elements and collectibles in Farm Heroes Saga.
On some levels you are engaged as a shepherd and have to guide some sheep onto a square of hay. Make a match next to a sheep to move it forward to the square of the switch. It is possible to move more than one sheep with a single match. All kind of subsequent matches will not move the sheep. Neither will a shovel or matches caused by a shovel. Frozen cropsies when matched don't have any effect.
Black sheep are guided just like normal sheep. However, unlike the normal sheep, black sheep eat the hay they are stepping on, so you are unable to guide more than one black sheep on the same spot, unless you plant a hay seed on the same place.
Normal sheep are prior to move firstly to a square of the switch if both kind of sheep are made a match next, and then it is black sheep turn.
- On mobile devices, black sheep didn't eat the hay which makes the game easier. It is fixed in March 2017.
- On Android, there is no preference when a match is made near sheep of 2 different colors.
- Sheep may go berserk when mushrooms are in the level. This happens more often on mobile devices.
- On mobiles sheep may be moved by water drops spilled by buckets which are matching (rare)
