As the battle for the White House goes down to the wire, some people are reflecting on times gone past to calm their nerves, with photos of sheep on the White House lawn being shared online.
Federated Farmers included one such image in their weekly newsletter, writing "Given the world's eyes are on what's happening with the USA election, we thought we'd relay something more positive".
The photo, from the White House Historical Society, was also shared on Facebook by the group Farmers against Misinformation.
It was taken in 1919 and shows President Woodrow Wilson's sheep grazing on the South Lawn, according to the White House Historical Society.
"Instead of using groundskeepers to cut the grass, the sheep grazed on the White House lawns. The flock grew to 48 at its peak. The wool sheared from the sheep was sold at auction to raise money for the Red Cross."
Other photos showing the sheep were also shared on Twitter earlier this year by White House History, which said "stories about sheep and their contributions to the war effort were popular" during the era.
