As the aircraft was being flared for the landing, a mob of sheep ran onto the strip. Two sheep were hit by the aircraft, one being thrown up against the left flap and the other struck the right tailplane. The landing was completed without further incident. The strip was not fenced off from the rest of the paddock and the pilot did not see the mob as he approached to land.
