lovely terrain and lighting here, Rich, and a pretty picture. Is the sheep wearing some kind of collar? Best wishes, susan

Greetings Susan, Thanks for visiting and commenting. You are right. The sheep has a tracking collar and the scientists keep track of where it goes. It was very unusual for the sheep to be in this location in the winter. The liked the information.

Cheers,

Rich

I wonder if it is a little cumbersome for him to be wearing a collar. It is a lot handier nowadays to be tagged by microchip. Best wishes, susan

Greetings Susan, Chips would be nice. But the collar does not bother the animal and they get used to it in a couple of days.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings B, It was unusual to find this sheep up here. There is no food except deep under the snow. Cheers, Rich
