A Croatian village about 40 kilometers from the capital of Zagreb has come up with a unique program to combat the stresses of modern life: playing shepherd. In addition to the care and keep of 25 sheep in a meadow on the southern slopes of Vuglec Breg, the weekend includes the feeding and grooming of the village’s ponies. All shepherds get a three-legged stool, a shepherd`s stick, and the services of sheep dog Riki at their disposal. Interested in additional activities? Join the villagers in the seasonal work of the vineyards and orchards, like chopping wood or other farm activities. The three-day program includes overnight stays in one of the traditional village houses as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The counting of sheep is not only requested, it’s required.
