Sheep by night

The days are already a lot shorter and now when we bring the sheep back down to the barn at 8pm it is almost dusk.

It’s very dusty, very hot and the sheep, like us want to get home as quickly as possible.

Which means scrabbling down steep slopes in the near dark, trying to stay a step ahead of a lot of impatient hooves.

1,120 to be exact!

    What a delight… just seeing those sheep coming home… makes the day wind down along the pathways as night falls. I’ve been trying to get to bed earlier lately and these photos are a wonderful image to keep in my mind about 8 p.m. when it’s time to turn off the computer and head on down the mountainside to dreamland. Many thanks.

    Sometimes your glad they have white coats at dusk at least you can see them. When I had a black labrador the only time I could find him was when it snowed, he used to hide in the dark. Was only saying tonight how fast the nights are drawing in and Autumn on the way.

  3. That is a lot of sheep. I’m sure it’s comforting to see them return at night.
