||Magic Moment - Winter Sunrise in High Mts. E.T. [EasternTurkey]
Sheep eat chopped straw with a few grains of barley then have to "scratch" in
those horrid hills, having fed lambs first! Note FAT tails still fat!
DARK RED dogs blend with such a flock.
Veiled woman (mine host) waits to let out lambs, knows EVERY ONE - if lost, matches
them up instantly. A basket of newly hatched goslings "peeped" all night by my
||Dogs patrol area before sheep start for Mts. - on discovering stranger: charged as a
pack! but soon got bored with immobile"pillar of salt". Only then could
photography resume. Alas, pics of the "charge" were out of focus due to fright
perhaps.. as MOST impressive!
Note excellent winter coats on all. Some have cropped ears but not all. Much interplay
noted, as dogs were from different households, so some semi-threats were being issued. The
brown stuff is winter-fuel, for the iron stoves and WONDERFULLY warming it is too.
