GORNERGRAT ALP - BLACKNOSE SHEEP IN ZERMATT
Living a movie kind life on the Gornergrat with a beautiful flock of Blacknose sheep, I spend this summer 2021 on a wonderful mountain. I spend my days with the flock and on the mountain, living in a caravan on almost 3000m with full view to Matterhorn.
Nature is strong and present here - the nature of high alpine clima. Storms, sunshine, snow, haliling and rainy or fogy days are my seven days working setup.
Here I take care about these unbelievable beautiful and unique sheep. I sheperd my flock of 115 sheep without dog - just a whistle and my voice. Sometimes I call them and they all follow, sometimes I lead them by sheperding from the back. The meadows are full of tiny flowers, lakes and small rivers.
People form all over the world visit Zermatt and the Gornergrat. Here we meet - with the application Meet the Sheep guests can track my flock by GPS and find us on the meadows. I talk to them, answer questions and let them touch the fluffy and curly wool of these exceptional sheep.
Many photographers make their way up here, so sometimes we meet for a shooting.
I am endlessly grateful for this unique and very rich experience, a combination of a perfect but adventurous life as well as the possibility to share this epic world with people form all over the world visiting us here.
