GOATS, SHEEP and SHEPHERDS

I had blogged on Himalayan Sheep and Goats a few days ago and thought it prudent to compare them with their brethren in other parts of India.

Do they vary like the Food, People and Landscape as well ? Please check out the pictures that follow and the blog mentioned above to express your views and thoughts.

All these pictures were taken from a Jeep near Ajmer, Rajasthan and Raipur , Pali District, Rajasthan.

It is extremely Rare to see a Shepherd Couple herding their flock together . This picture is thus highly Prized.

Black Faced Sheep reminds me of an old Indian Saying,”from where have you blackened your face

The Fur is dense and had  been retained thus far. Do compare the fur to the Himalayan Sheep in my blog mentioned before.

Also unusual is  to photograph a Lady Shepherd. We are now Lucky, twice over.The Steel container she carries is called a Tiffin Box which has separate compartments and in all likelihood carries her Lunch.

Please observe the fur of the Sheep, they have been sheared.

I found these Sheep following their shadow while the Goat in White with Tail Up stands out.
