How do you tend to a herd in the desert? In this fun and unique tour, you will meet the sweet goats and sheep up close and go with them to the pasture, accompanied by an experienced shepherd who will teach you some herding secrets. Find out how to lead the herd, which plants the goats eat, what to do when a goat gives birth and how to take care of the young. During the relevant season, you can also try out shearing the goats’ or sheep’s wool.
