Customer Review

on January 11, 2011
Before I watched the movie, I was expecting a documentary on a bunch of herders/cowboys simply tried to move the sheep from point A to point B, with some breathtaking scenery.

However, after I watched the movie, I was so disgusted by it, mainly by the way these people would treat animals. Those foul-mouthed cowboys/ranchers ought to be ashamed of themselves! The first horrified scene were shots of shearing. The shearer dragged the sheep and pinned it on the floor, not a table. At first I wondered why there were multiple red spots on his pants, then I saw sheep was cut at its neck and it was bleeding. I think the worst scenes for me personally was the way they handled baby sheep. They tossed those lambs around like they are steaks, stacking them on top of each other. The bottom of the "stack" consisted of a lamb they just pulled out 5 seconds ago, then he literally threw 2 lambs more on top of it. I understand for those who grew up around the ranch, this might be a mesmerizing film. But for city folks like myself, I am completely appalled. I am trying to think of a positive message this film has brought to the table, but I cannot find any. There is no narration in this documentary, so good luck with figuring out what is going on yourself. The only cool scene that I can think of was when the herd was passing through town, on a paved main road.

Bottom line, if you were exposed to the ranching industry, go for it. If you try to buy this as a gift for your animal loving friend or a nice, soft-spoken aunt of yours, don't, or they'll be as horrified as I am.
