Les drailles, qui pour certains auraient été créées naturellement par les ovins avant leur domestication, ont été ensuite des voies de de transhumance organisées ainsi que des voies de communication beaucoup plus fréquentées qu'on ne l'imagine à l'heure actuelle, quand le temps marchait au pas de l'homme et du mulet. Elles étaient très fréquentées par les troupeaux venant du Bas-Languedoc et se rendant dans la Margeride et l'Aubrac. Les drailles empruntent toujours le chemin le plus direct qui suit les crêtes des chaînes montagneuses, évitant autant que possible de descendre dans le fond des vallées. Sur cette grande voie de communication nord-sud venaient se greffer des drailles secondaires, orientées est-ouest, montant des vallées. Aujourd'hui, les troupeaux de moutons transhumants montent à la mi-juin, et le retour se fait début septembre. Les mères et les meneurs portent les jolis pompons de laine colorés et des sonnailles. Le folklore et la tradition perdurent même si le troupeau a diminué.

BY EMOKE BEBIAK You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Sheep rustling is on the rise in most areas of the English countryside, but one farmer might have just found the solution to stop thieves. BBC has the story. “How would you prevent your sheep from being stolen? Well, according to one farmer here in Dartmoor, you do this. You dye them orange. But this is no laughing matter because livestock thefts have increased by up to 500 percent.” The farmer John Heard turned to this desperate measure after he had lost more than 200 sheep in the past few years. He says each ewe costs £140 or about $230. Heard explains to The Telegraph, “It works because they are so easy to distinguish making it easier for me and my neighbours to keep a wary eye out for them. Plus the rustlers are obviously nervouse (sic) about stealing such easily distinguished animals.” Heard is one of the many farmers struggling with a rise in livestock theft in England. SkyNews reports, “Thieves strike at night and are highly organized. In one of the worst cases of the year, 271 sheep were taken from a Lancashire farm. Sheep rustling is at a decade high.” SkyNews also adds the main reason for the sudden spike in thefts is the rise in the price of lamb. The Washington Post says global economy is to blame. “The ovine crime wave began, insurance company and farm union officials say, after global food prices started jumping again... Because of escalating world demand and scaled-back production in such nations as New Zealand, a farmer's price per pound for lamb here is now about 35 percent higher than in 2008.” According to the BBC - Sheep rustling also poses a health threat because meat from the stolen animals might enter the market without undergoing inspection. “If these animals were stolen, they may well be illegally slaughtered, so not fit for human consumption, if they’ve recently been vaccinated or dipped.” As for the orange sheep, the owner says the dye is harmless and eventually fades away.

A big white, Dorset is shown contending for and mating with ewes. Boris, the Russian Romanov buck (has black shoulders), became very jealous. However he couldn't fight because he was on the other side of a fence. He was quite frustrated and tried to ram the other buck through the fence, but knew he couldn't. He symbolically rammed the big buck anyway and did get in a butt or two, but not nearly as hard as he wanted. Note that not only do the rams want to butt heads, but they also try to trip each other, by sticking a leg out near the other's legs. Boris gets his turn later as shown in another video. Although most are not aware of it because sheep are depicted as docile and submissive, the ram is a formidable animal -that can inspire respect because of his size and strength. The video shows that both rams have "manes," or thick, dense, long hair around their shoulder area much as a male lion or a human with a beard. This increases their look of power. The idea for the "Battering Ram" came from the ram. They can hit with tremendous power. Many sheep have huge horns, such as the Big Horn Mountain Sheep. Rams of this breed can hit each other with such force they can be heard for miles among the mountains. The dorset is a breed that can have horns to match those of the big horn sheep. Some, due to a mutation, do not have horns and are called polled. The dorset shown here had 1 small horn. It is on his right side and does not show up well in the video. Boris was hornless. Big horns, such a those some dorsets sport, are prized by collectors. Sheep in general are highly intelligent animals that survive in a large variety of habitats, from desert areas into the arctic regions. There about 1/4 as many sheep in the world as there are people. They have tremendous acrobatic ability and are noted for their sure-footed ability to leap among craggy mountain slopes. A video, Dogs Attack Kill Eat, Sheep make evasive maneuvers, at ***********/watch?v=W4kDIhTX-cM, shows some of their behavior. Dolly the first mammal to be cloned was a Finn Dorset. Boris also demonstrates the closeness between sheep and goats in appearance. **The Dorset, or white-faced sheep is huge, the ewes can weight more than 200 lbs. and the rams up to 300 lbs. They are named for an area of England. When Spain tried to conquer England centuries ago, they brought the Merino sheep into Southwest England and crossbred them with the local horned sheep of Wales. **The Russian Romanov sheep, originally came from the Volga Valley northwest of Moscow in Russia, are quite well adapted to cold. They are named after a Russian Imperial family. Horns occur in both sexes. Typical adult weight is up to around 150-180 lbs for males and around 100-150 lbs for ewes. Wool is grown only by the ovine species -- sheep. Unlike sheep of other breeds, the wool of Romanov sheep consists of only guard hair. The Romanov breed is a pure breed, not a cross of other kinds of sheep. The males have a big black mane around their neck and shoulders, which gives them an impressive appearance.
