Sheepskin Man At An Old English Fair


Is he a shepard or just a sheepskin man?

Most likely this fella was a sheperd who had a flock of sheep to tend every day. They had to be taken up into the high lowlands of the mountains to graze as the grass near his village was pretty much grazed over, and would not grow any longer. This was because, as we all know, the sheep eat the grass down to the nub and kill it a whole lot.

The sheepskin man could have actually made the vest from one of his sheep who died of old age and was his best old sheepish friend or he could have just killed some sheperd and stole the vest and made off with it.

We don't know for sure, and no one wants to ask him directly.
