Sheep Near The Sea

This photo shows two sheep caring for the youngest sheep. I chose this picture because Santiago thinks that sheep only care about being fed which is untrue. It  shows two parents caring for their child showing that sheep do have feelings.  I think of sheep as animals that live a peaceful and relaxed life when I see this photo.When I read the passage about sheep only caring about food and water, I almost believed Santiago until I saw this portrait.The way sheep feel is different than the way people feel and when Santiago thinks that they only care about food and water and that they are clueless makes him sound ignorant. While human love can be proven and tested scientifically, sheep love cannot which is why most people come to the assumption that sheep are careless animals.
