my world.....

by barfischer in Scotland

Sheep are everywhere..... it looks very cute... but it is the result of a very sad history... after the battle at Culloden more, l746, where Bonny Prince Charley was defeated by the government... the clearencies began in late 18th and 19th century. The Clan chiefs forbid the crofters to farm on the landscapes of the Highlands as the Clan chiefs got much more money by the southern sheep farmers, farming the sheep on the scottish Highlands. The clearencies of these crofters began. The crafters had no other choice than to immigrate to Canada, Nova Scotia, Australia. Still now the abandoned and ruined homes of the former crofters are to see....
the sheep live almost in wilderness, often even no fences and we met a mother sheep feeding her baby on the middle of the road... twice in a year the farmer go out to gather their sheep for the shearing...
