There’s got to be some parallel here to pastors. Give me some time to think about it.
From The Telegraph:
Ci the Border Collie has developed a fear of sheep making it impossible for him to perform his day job…
Mrs Lippington, 54, said Ci instinctively wants to work the sheep, but is too scared.
“If they run away from him, he will go after them and act like a proper sheepdog, but the moment they turn and face him he runs away.”
“Sheep can be quite aggressive if they think they have the upper hand – they stamp their feet and gang up in numbers and act like an army.”
