“I have been a shepherd since I was a kid. I didn’t really have my own animals, but I was doing the work for other people. Little by little, I bought my own animals and now I own these all. If someone had been a shepherd for a long time, they almost become a veterinarian because they usually treat their animals if they are sick; they can simply go and buy the needed medicine, no need to move the animal to the doctors. As a shepherd, I really have no stress, all I think about is to find food for my animals. Your mind is really not on this world as a shepherd, you don’t need to think about what you must do and mustn’t do or to meet who.
My family are constantly pressing me to get married, I will think about it this fall when I have less work because currently, I have dedicated all of my time to the animals.”
