Tushetian sheep

1Traditionally, the Tusheti – a population of ethnic Georgians – are sheep herders. Due to the tough living conditions of their land on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus mountains, they have developed a semi-nomadic lifestyle. Even Tushetian sheep live in nomadic conditions and can cover a distance of 500-600km, spending winters in pastures and summers in the mountains.
