Wellingtonia: I don't know. Possibly, given the location in an (in a lot opposite the Interio shop in Spreitenbach) but how can I tell for sure? There's a Schrebergarten across the street from the lot.

Hi Z

In this case the sheeps are in a pasture with a fence around.
In your picture it wasn't visible.
Have you ever seen an migrating herd.
Three to four hundred sheep's come over an hill with snow.
Great "event"!!

Meaning a wild herd not owned by anyone with wool streaming down and unkempt. Ooh yes - that would be a wonderful sight! I guess these two little fellas will need to be man-fed when the snow covers all.

They do look cold though.

I love the way the golden one is looking right at you. His face has a lot of expression. :)

Wellingtonia: Is there a schedule of when-and-where that one can find for these migrations? I saw one in the summer last year while I was on a bus and I wasn't able to get off and take photos.

Wellingtonia: Thank you for the links. I'm going to see if I can find some more information about the guy and his flock.
