Sheep and shepherd


You must have seen little lambs in the meadow during spring. Nice sight, isn’t it, as they leap and jump and chase each other. And when go to their mothers and drink. What you see less often is when the mother sheep and their lambs are being sent inside. They don’t always like that. But...
