We were in the hills west of Farisiya. Farisiya extends along the road west of the Rotem settlement. Accompanying the herd passed calmly, and included a few cycles of rain, a strong wind on the hills and a heavy layer of mud on the soles of the shoes and around them.
Accompanying shepherds in Faresiya

The vegetation for the flock is still poor.
