Elle est pas belle ma sonnaille ?

Elle est pas belle ma sonnaille ?
In an enclosure near Dobredol (MK), october 2007

Some sheeps from the flock are wearing a bell (sonnaille in french).
This bell helps the sheepherds to find sheeps in case of bad weather
or when sheeps are in the forest. One of the sheeps has got a bigger
one because it's the leader which is driving other sheeps by the sound
of it's bell.

Doing some ethnological investigations among albanian people in Macedonia,
I am studying local knowledge about livestock breeding, livestock protection
and great predators (bears, lynx, wolves) behaviour and ecology.
