Sheep Being Sheep

I was never around sheep until I met Jon and had my studio at Old Bedlam Farm.  It was there that I saw the essence of sheep, and the meaning associated to their name, that they are followers, in action.

That’s why Izzy, our lone sheep, is so unusual.  Mostly sheep behave just as they do in this video, following each other closely.  I have no doubt that this is an instinct to keep them together and safer from predators.  But to see it still at work, so consistently,  when they’ve never really known  any danger in this life,  is still intriguing  for me to watch.
