The San Angelo district of TxDOT had a naming contest for the sheep installed at its headquarters on Knickerbocker Road and the Eden Section won with the name “Don’t Ewe Mess with Texas.”
Junction Area Office employee Todd D’Spain painted the sheep and District Special Jobs crew installed the massive rock and permanently placed the sheep on the rock.
The sheep is the 92nd placed in San Angelo as part of Downtown San Angelo’s Sheep Spectacular.
It features traffic safety messages and slogans TxDOT is known for, including “Don’t Mess with Texas.”
