In Schlierbach, I met the Shropshire sheep the first time. These sheep are known for loving grass but not nibbling at trees. So they are ideal for keeping grass short in fruit farms and Christmas tree plantations. Best lawnmower ever.
Well, I would love to see more of them in my region. A flock of sheep moving around gardens and parks is a gain for villages and even city districts. Sheep are not that noisy like modern lawnmowers. Besides that, sheep are fun for kids.
It’s really something to think about why we should work with noisy lawnmowers instead of watching silent sheep? I am curious to hear your ideas.
