Forget Children — Now You Can Adopt Cyber-Sheep

The hottest celeb trend these days may be adopting kids from foreign countries, but children aren't the only options available for wannabe parents.

One farmer in New Zealand has offered his flock of sheep for adoption on the Internet.

Chris Adams, the owner of the 6,000 available sheep, has launched a Web site for people who are looking for a little animal love in their lives, reported United Press International.

The site is aimed at people who don't have any pets. It allows people to keep track of their adopted sheep online.

Adoptive parents get visit their sheep and name it — and will soon be able to watch it on a Web cam.

Adams says he hopes to raise help awareness overseas about New Zealand's farming practices.
