A little over a week ago, these sheep began work. The group consists of a wide variety of ages, and the relationship really is a win-win-win. The sheep grow fat and happy, the farmer gets their sheep fed, and the grazing of the land prohibits certain plants, such as thistle, from dominating the field, which promotes the diversity that is so common along the River Kennet.
I love how captivated he is by the sheep; he’ll pull me over to them, where we’ll have to watch for a minute or two before he’ll continue the walk. Personally, I think he’s fascinated with them due to the fact that both they’re both four-legged, white, and adorably fluffy!
