Sheep herding
#1
I've had the idea for a sheep dog character for a while and really want to use it. But now that I've researched sheep herding and wool production, its starting to look a little too complicated. For one, the process of actually making something out of wool requires a ton of tools, some of them a little too big to carry around. The idea was for him to be a nomadic shepherd because otherwise there would be no reason for him to wander into 'Souls.

Does anyone here have any sheep knowledge or other helpful advice on how I can make my roaming shepherd idea work without being too unrealistic?
