Anyone who has ever tried to herd sheep will know that is can – at times – be rather tricky.  However, our herding distances and efforts pale in comparison to those undertaken by the shepherds and their flock in this picture. 

This image shows a small part of their eight hour trek to new grazing in the Alps.  Those of you with a keen eye may be able to spot the odd Valais Blacknose amongst the woolly entourage.
