the sheep of Exloo

A picture from the 'Molenveld', as the heather fields near Exloo are called, taken last month. The flock of about 200 sheep that you see in the distance is owned by the local authorities, and is taken care of by a foundation named 'Stichting Schaapskudde Exloo'. The flock has been in the local news recently as Tienus Kaspers, their shepherd for the last 27 years, passed away in December, and an add was put in the newspaper for a new shepherd.
