Walking back to our car after our visit to the Autumn Fair in Bourtange, we saw a shepherd with his flock of sheep coming towards us.
Look how beautiful they are, I love their colour! These are Solognote sheep, a old breed originally from France. They are known as being nosy and intelligent. Here in Bourtange they graze on the steep dikes that you see on the first photo.
