This unusual sized postcard (tall and thin compared to the traditional sizes we have been receiving) came from Meta in Slovenia. She explained that the sheep head to the mountains in the summer, and that the shepherd will stay in a cottage with them, where he makes cheese from their milk. In the autumn, they are brought back down to the valley where they stay until the next summer. What a great card with information that will be fun to find out more about!
