A certain breed of dog is used in Germany as a watchdog,
when walking among the sheep the wolf stays at a distance.
This puppy of the breed has already started as a student.
The sheep probably tell it what the task is all about,
when grown up same size of the sheep.
In french Kaysersberg, some sheeps have an extra indoor job for the time being.
The old ugly tree.
A very long life has given the experience that haste, less speed
it’s not always best to be first in spring
some night frost of the early spring can tease all plans.
A winter storm over a year ago gave some bruises and wounds
but just like last year so is the old ugly tree spring frisky again
soon there are thousands of tiny bright green leaves.
Perhaps the philosophy to meet the challenges from there they come
not at all the worst to do – instead of sitting down and wish to be somewhere else.
The old black sheep trying to protect the old ugly tree well
it does not allow cats to climb the tree
this morning had the old “queen” not reached its morning toilette
but was too curious to stay inside.
The sheep may be the ultimate utility animals
in moorlands as the North Yorkshire Moors in northeastern England
the sheeps carry out a really great job in maintaining the nature fit for fight.

This is Scotland, the forest in the background it’s England
I believe this sheep is a scottish undercover border cop
who keep a watchful eye on who crosses the border from south.
My name is Sheep, Molly the Sheep..?
Sheeps are really a large part of the life of the moor
and the key for the survival of the moor.
The sheeps have an eye for many things – even strangers on mountain bikes.
Sheep are a familiar sight on the North York Moors in UK,
but do we really realise how much they help shape the landscape..?
Sheep numbers in the area are keep falling,
but if they disappear completely the look of the entire moors will change drastically too.

The old black sheep have been clipped wool, a sure sign of spring
who does not know the phenomenon – new hairstyle equals new look.
Away is the winter jacket.
