ID #FR58

Description:

A sheep herder with a select few of her flock stand against a vibrant backdrop littered with royal blue and goldenrod.  The rolling French countryside peeks through the trees and fence as the woman stands with her livestock.  

Raised for its exquisite meat, adaptability to surroundings, and prolificacy, the berrichonne de l'Indre (a French breed of sheep) is a heirloom of the Berry region. This "Grande Semaine" (big week) was most likely a celebration of this animal and it's renowned qualities.

Now endangered, the berrichonne de l'Indre is a protected species under conservation and controlled re-population efforts.
