Seemed to be an OrphanedSeries as Adis hadn't updated it since 2011. Until unexpectedly updating in 2014, for about a dozen updates. By March 2016, the site is unresponsive.

* VisibleToBelievers: Katie's "imaginary friend" Ship is real, but can only be seen by certain people. At first that's Katie and Katie's mom Laurie (whose imaginary friend Ship was when she was Katie's age), but later the strip introduces Laurie's mom -- who can see Ship, but repeatedly denies that she believes he exists ''even when she's talking to him and there's nobody else around'' -- and Laurie's CoolBigSis -- who ''can't'' see Ship, even though she believes he exists.

In addition to the regular comic, the artist posts fanart he has done for other comics, and a series of ''TheFarSide''-like single panel strips called "Adrianisms."

Comic by Adrian Ramos (better known to his fans as "Adis") about a hyperactive young girl named Katie, her neurotic mother, and their shared imaginary friend, a sheep named Ship.

Originally intended as an endless variation on the joke that when Katie wants to go to sleep she only needed to [[CountingSheep count sheep]] -- of which she only had one, which made it very easy. Very soon Adis realised that this joke would wear very thin very fast, and began following Katie and Ship in their day-to-day lives instead, introducing her mother Laurie as a character (for six years, these three were the only people to ever appear in the strip; recently Laurie's sister and became the fourth (and her newborn baby would become the fifth)). Laurie even started getting her own "Back in Time" strips, flashing back to when she was a kid and she and Ship had the kind of relationship that he now has with Katie.

One of the few G-rated webcomics ever produced (along with IrregularWebcomic), it mostly focuses on single gags and humorous, epigrammatic observations, although at times it has longer story arcs, and it is gradually establishing a backstory about Laurie's romance with her late husband.

In addition to the regular comic, the artist posts fanart he has done for other comics, and a series of ''TheFarSide''-like single panel strips called "Adrianisms."

This webcomic provides examples of:
* AccidentalAimingSkills: [[http://countyoursheep.keenspot.com/d/20080915.html at this page.]]
* CallBack: Many strips are different pastiches of the [[http://countyoursheep.keenspot.com/d/20030611.html original strip]]. Latest [[http://countyoursheep.keenspot.com/d/20100708.html here]].
* CutAndPasteComic: Not very blatant, but fairly often a pose will be recycled between panels, though usually with the expression changed.
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: [[TheGrimReaper Death]] was one of Ship's teachers, back in the day; and an excellent teacher he was, as evidenced by Ship's incredible capacity to induce drowsiness. In one brief flashback, Ship, having fallen on hard times, runs into his old teacher while on a coffee run. Death pokes fun at the sheep who majored in sleep for taking a job that has him keeping people awake.
* DisappearedDad: [[TheUnseen Marty]], Katie's father, is known to have passed away before the beginning of the strip.
* FlashBack: The "Back in Time" sequences featuring Katie's mother, Laurie, when she was a child and Ship was ''her'' imaginary friend.
* MistakenForGay: Played with, in one story Katie gets upset and locks herself in her closet. Ship tells Laurie that she won't come out of the closet. He then has to explain the situation a little more for her.
* ThatCloudLooksLike
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: [[http://countyoursheep.keenspot.com/d/20070213.html Marty's]] [[http://countyoursheep.keenspot.com/d/20070215.html letters]] to Laurie.
* {{Tsundere}}: Laurie as a kid.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Subverted, mostly, because although that vibe is there, we already know Marty's significance to Laurie.
