Of sheep and shepherds

with 2 comments

David Murray draws on his Highland experience to speak of sheep and of shepherds.

Sheep are . . .

  • foolish.
  • slow to learn.
  • unattractive.
  • demanding.
  • stubborn.
  • strong.
  • straying.
  • unpredictable.
  • copycats.
  • restless.
  • dependent.
  • the same everywhere.

The shepherd is a sheep.

The shepherd . . .

  • is patient with his sheep.
  • knows his sheep.
  • values his sheep.
  • loves his sheep.
  • observes his sheep.
  • feeds his sheep.
  • leads his sheep.
  • speaks well of his sheep.
  • pursues his sheep.
  • rests his sheep.
  • perseveres with his sheep.
