A young goat gets back home


Last October I was recording the chiming bells of a few goats, which were closed in a small fence near San Mauro Castelverde, on the Madonie. Suddenly I started hearing a shout from far away on the right, which at first I interpreted as children playing somewhere in the surroundings. Nonetheless the shouts were repeating identical so that I thought it could be a kid, perhaps left behind by the herd I had in front of me. The sound of the young goat shouting was moving closer and at a certain point a shepherd appeared from the brush, with the kid in his hands. A nice bucolic scene which is portrayed in this small recording.

From time to time the recording is disturbed by some car passing by. I suggest for the listening a mid-low level of playback.
