Living the life of a shepherd

Flocks of sheep dash across the field causing dust to leap into the air – an image that depicted the intensity and the speed of sheep running across the terrain.  Mountains ascend from the grassy field and a scintillating lake.  A herder watches the sheep being crammed into a small area surrounded by gates.  A red barn with various shades of red stands under the sunlight.  The cool breeze creates a very relaxing moment.


I was at the Flock Hills, a sheep farm.  It was an immeasurable experience to see how sheep are raised at a farm, and how herders gather wool.  Flock Hills is located about 40 km from Christchurch, a very boring city where there’s not much to do.
