The Kashmiri Shepherd

I had the honour of meeting some passing Kashmiri shepherds and gypsies on journey through the Indian Himalayas. Some shepherds had over 100 sheep or goat! Guiding them through the mountains by making high pierced whistle sounds or by rattling an empty can which contained a stone inside. The gypsy’s tended to have goats, cows or horses and relocated their families during the summer season to hand built homes made of stone, wood and tarpaulin as a roof.
