Athanassopoulos, Mitreika, Greece

Grandpa, Lambi, helping sheep give birth. Shortly after this video was taken. Showing him helping the new born find its mother, giving the new born first feed. Meanwhile the sheep need to be milked, relieved each day twice, simple job but hard work.

I believe this has been this way for hundreds of years, maybe thousands? Tradition lives on.

Unfortunately footage lost of Grandpa Lambi, loosing it because sheep escaped through an open gate. Angry but loving, real shame that wasn’t captured as this is such an Athanassopoulos way.

A total inspiration time.

Then a call that my grandma yaiyai back home has been admitted into hospital, she is stable currently, I wish she was here, she would love this. Hope she gets to watch this.
