I have seen large number of sheep that are periodically allowed to graze within
specific boundaries at Coyote Hills. I think this is done for controlled
grazing, an environmenatlly friendly way of controlling grass and weed population at
different sections of the park (but I am not saying this from any
professional knowledge). You can see some more photos of amazing movement of
sheep herds at sheep flow at coyote hills. An amazing thing
about watching sheep grazing is the behavior of the dog that is used to control the
movement of sheep. You will watch in disbelief how one single dog is able to control
such a large number of animals with utter confidence and eagerness.
Can you spot the dog in the top photo?
