Our local sheep flock has returned last week from their winter barn to the grassfields in Almere Haven. They were very busy with their job to mow the lawn, these two women are the shepherds with their dogs.
In february many sheep had got lambs and they had grown up enough to walk along with the flock.
The shepherd had an affectionately talk with one of them.
The lambs looked quite different than the mothers. The mothers were bleating all the time and one of the shepherds told me they were doing that to let the lambs know where they are. They don't follow the lambs but the lambs have to find the mothers themselves by hearing their sound. That is easy motherhood! Linking to "Our World Tuesday"
