The antithesis of high-finance commercialised sport...
My sympathy goes to the sheep. Mind, if that's all he was doing with them it's quite a relief... Wink

What a lovely rustic scene. And those hillocks in the background are really strange.

Love Moira's comment Smile

My grandfather used to carry sheep under his arm - but it takes a strong man to do that.

Interesting landscape with the rather barren looking hills - in some respects reminds of the hills in places in California.

Thats what people had to do before under arm deodorant was invented. Poor sheep. The original Swiss Army Knife.

Nice shot, quick mod.
