Despite its name, your covisflower is not a flower at all but a small sheep. The name actually refers to the little flowering buds that coat its body and form its plant-like fleece. They have not yet come in to give it the full-bodied fluffy appearance of the adults, but young covisflower grow quickly and yours will be fully-grown within a few months. In the mean time, it seems to enjoy running around the Keep grounds and frolicking among the Keep's various gardens. You have to watch it attentively, though; while they resemble vegetables and have an edible fleece, they're not above sneaking a nibble of their produce lookalikes.

No one is quite sure where covisflower came from, but a popular nursery rhyme tells of a kindly farmer who opened up the leaves of one of his cauliflower plants and found a sheep there instead of the usual crop. In all likelihood, covisflower were bred from existing sheep and at some point imbued with magic to make them more like vegetables. Or perhaps they were created from enchanted vegetables by farmers tired of having cauliflower that couldn't stand up to even the slowest snails. Regardless, these creatures make lovely companions and are favored by vegetarians. Although they look fluffy from a distance, their fleece is actually made of stiff but edible plant buds. While not the softest creatures, covisflower fleece comes in many colors and breeders work hard to create new and vibrant colors to enter into shows.
