Shepherd On The Range, Southern Colorado

Modern day shepherd on the range in Southern Colorado. Camo snow gear, thick gloves, high tech snow boots, a beautiful palomino and that’s his home on the range in the left rear. The sheep and a few goats look very healthy and winter weather resistant. Temperatures dropped to 14 degrees at 4:30pm yesterday. Today was another cold day in the valley. The shepherd and his sheep were heading north right down the middle of the road. I turned off the engine, sat and watched the show. It’s slow moving but they get there eventually. Thanks for looking.

  1. I grew up in Moffat Co, Craig CO. My grand parents had a dairy ranch. Craig Used to be the most important wool shipping point in the US. At last visit did not many sheep. In the old days. Old timers said wool ranching is not a going business. Good to see some sheep.

    1. Thank you Michael for sharing this story. This area was mostly sheep country, to the extent of much over grazing. There are several very large herds I’ve seen around here and they all look healthy, but I can’t speak for the economics of it. I mostly enjoy the photo ops in this agricultural community. I hope you and Mary are well. G
