|~ The Farmer|
The Farmer is the nameless tritagonist of the BBC/Aardman show, Shaun the Sheep and the deuteragonist in the 2015 movie of the same name, as well as the teteragonist of it's sequel Farmageddon.
He was voiced by John Sparkes, who also voiced his dog Bitzer.
Not much is known about The Farmer's background, but it is revealed that he has lived on his farm ever since he was a child. His family, may have owned the farm for generations as seen on a shelf above his fireplace which shows photos of (in respective order); The Farmer and Bitzer along with The Flock, The Famer's father alongside a unnamed dog and sheeps, and The Farmer's grandfather.
He is a farmer who has a love for animals. He has been seen multiple times caring for his animals, though he has also caused them some suffering over time (like when he spilled growth-fluid on one of his tomatoes which caused Timmy to grow to an over-natural size). Though he should be used to long nights outside, The Farmer is quite scared in the dark. His easily frightened by strange noises and objects, which has been used by the flock multiple times to avoid him revealing their true nature. He is dumb because he doesn't notice that the sheep are getting up to mischief when hes not looking like when the sheep steal the hot water from his bath and uses it for theirs.
