Adult covisflowers are small compared to other sheep, even the big ones hardly the size of a dog. They're gentle creatures, unable to do much to defend themselves except hide in bushels of cauliflower and run if their garden is invaded by hungry rabbits. Though it contains plenty of fiber, the fleece is far too stiff and brittle to turn into any sort of fabric. It gets sheared once per year nonetheless. The crunchy coat is edible when washed and as it will simply shrivel up in the cold once winter comes, it is trimmed off and used in delicious salads during the Harvest Festival. The creatures suffer no ill effects from their annual shearing and in fact seem to enjoy all the attention. Come springtime, their fleece will start to bud again and grow new morsels for a future feast.

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.
