Randonnée avec moutons – Hike with sheep

Transhumance is the moving of domestic animals from winter pastures to summer pastures and back again. In France it happens mostly in mountainous areas however the name has been appropriated for an annual movement of sheep from the grand agricultural market site at La Latiere to the communal land below the bastide walls in Saint-Aulaye-Puymangou.

It is a pleasant and slow hike for anyone who wishes to walk with the sheep as they wend their way through the byways of the forest and through the centre of Saint-Aulaye. Talking to the shepherd the sheep are quite happy to act as commune lawnmowers and calmly chomp their way across the common.
