7 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The grazing takes place on the hills, about 2 kilometers west of the shepherd’s home. This is where the shepherd turns to when he is accompanied.

Food here is abundant, and when we accompany him the settler-colonist is less frightening.

In the west is the winding spring, and the flock here may be watered in the morning and on the way home.

The shepherd is willing to remain alone or accompanied by his father around 2 p.m. For then he is near home and in a safe area, as far as he is concerned.
