The Shepherd and The Sheepcote

"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.

The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

These were our "teenagers".  They are the first successful hatch of Royal Palm turkeys that we raised from the breeding pair that I had purchased the year before.  Thankfully someone came to their rescue and they did not have to become Thanksgiving dinner for anyone. 
Happy Thanksgiving to You!
