    It wouldn't be part human and part sheep, but it would be a precursor to human and sheep. That is we would could trace our lineages to a common ancestor and that ancestor would be neither human nor sheep.

    Wow this is far out, reminds me of the novel "Next" by Crighton where he writes of transgenic animal/humans.
