large herd of sheep and goats on the open lands of the San Luis Valley

On the range; hundreds of sheep and goats on the open range. I photograph the wild horses of Southern Colorado and was struggling to find them in their usual range. While wandering a long way out I ended up on private land. I could not find the horses anywhere and so turned around in defeat. I stopped and turned around and found these sheep and goats following me. I did not hear a sound and was so happily surprised in seeing them.
