Visiting a shepherd..>>read on

schaapsherder in Limburg

A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit a shepherd in Limburg who grazes his sheep in the area of the marl caves near Valkenburg. The Marlland Sheep is a large, tall and slender landrace with a generous, light wool coat that is even, long and sleek.
It was great to see how humans and animals live in perfect cooperation, one with nature. Despite a huge noise of sheep bleating there was a pleasant calm. An inspiration for me to continue this natural symbiosis in my wall hangings.
