Introducing Doreen

We are currently staying on a sheep farm walking through the fields every day is great fun but quite interesting observing the sheep’s behaviour. My theory is that sheep have a leader who communicates to all the others what they have to do, I think the leader in these fields is Doreen. When the Shepard comes into the field Doreen lets all the other sheep know if he is coming to feed them or just checking up on them. They appear to get into a panic if things happen out of the ordinary say if they are being moved they look to Doreen to make sure it’s OK to go when she say’s go they move off but not with good grace a lot of chuntering and mumbling.
