Sheep and Lambs

When summer comes, sheep follow the same path back to the grazing areas they used the year before. Sheep prefer grass, but also eat some leaves and branches. During the days, they wander around and feed with small breaks in between where they lie down and ruminate the food. They are good at finding shelter from stormy weather or intense sunlight.

During the day, sheep families often feed separately and gather to sleep together in the evening. A sheep family can consist of two ewes (adult female sheep) with their lambs. The sheep are herd animals and like to be with other sheep. Lambs suckle their mothers for 3-4 months and play with other lambs in the flock; climbing, running and jumping, always with 

their mother nearby.
