When the sun starts scorching, sheep will drink water and rest in a field of grass. From 2-5 in the afternoon, the shepherd would drive them to other pastures to have "lunch". At dusk, the sun gradually sets in the distant mountains, sheep are driven back to the farm to have a light meal which consists of planted grass or cut grass to supply nutrition for sheep.

Despite the difficulties, the life of nomads here is natural and peaceful. There are only people with trees, with gentle animals, there is no hustle and noise of real life. Because, not everyone can have the opportunity to "enjoy" the peaceful space, the characteristic smell of sheep fields between a quiet wilderness surrounded by meadows, majestic mountains./.
