    Smile stare like a sheep

    Hello.
    I am wondering what this underlined phrase means.
    Is it mean 'stared stupidly' or something?"
    Thank you.

    "Do you like stories about Faries?"
    She opened her silly blue eyes and stared like a sheep and answered,
    "What is a Fairy?"

    Yes, it means "stupidly" in a sense, and also perhaps, "without showing any emotion".

    Do you know the way a dog can stare at you and you can be pretty sure what the dog is thinking? Well, when you see a sheep stare at something or someone, it doesn't seem like much is happening inside its head.
