I love this. It brings back memories of the time I lived in a traditional Navajo hogan and herded sheep like these and Angora (Navajo Angoras, actually, which are different from regular Angoras). The lady who owned them was matriarch of her family and did not speak English, but we communicated via her granddaughter. She showed me the basics of spinning wool the Navajo way and lent me a spindle, so as to have something to do while the animals grazed on the mesa.
