Hiseyin the Goatherd

Hiseyin "The Goatherd" near Ayas.This wonderful character walks around 30km daily on average with the 1350 Angoras he is in charge of.He has a donkey,two part time younger helpers and 17 Anatolian Shepherd guard dogs.He is 67,and very happy being out in the wilderness.Bob(my Kiwi/Swiss travelling mate) gave him his Swiss army knife,and he seemed pleased with that!

He raced me back up the hill to our car- We called it a tie,but I suspect he was pacing himself.

    Hi Dave, What a trip this would have been……MY TWO GREAT LOVES COMBINED …….ANGORAS and the ANATOLIAN SHEPHERD DOGS. Do you have more photos of the dogs. We have a 11 month old female who now weighs over 60kgs. I Bred ASDs in WA over 20 years ago and have always used them as guardians for our angoras…..the best dog in the world. When you visited us in Australia I was then searching for a new dog …….it took some time but was worth the wait shes a beauty. Regards Juliana.
