sheep http://wrvo.org en On Bellwethers In Nature http://wrvo.org/post/bellwethers-nature <p>John Weeks talks about bellwethers. In previous episodes he used the term, but never actually defined it. He reveals that term refers to a sheep, usually a gelded male. He wears a bell around his neck and is a leader for a flock of sheep and an indicator for the whereabouts of the flock in extremely foggy weather conditions. This was all he could find about the term and it was not even in the encyclopedia or other resources he looked in for the term. He had to “wing it” from there and elaborated on the definition based on his own experiences.</p> Thu, 05 Dec 2013 21:00:00 +0000 John Weeks 48007 at http://wrvo.org
