Dogs in sheep’s clothing

februari 18, 2015

The pickup truck is making its way over a bumpy meadow towards the sheep enclosure. Three large livestock guardian dogs - that look very much like sheep themselves – have already seen us and are watching us attentively from behind the fence. They know the vehicle and they know their shepherd, that’s why they are not raising the alarm. As we get out and walk towards the herd, they wag their tails and stay relaxed.
