Fort Saskatchewan's famous flock are off for another winter.
The city held their annual sheep leaving parade on Monday (Sept.2), in front of hundreds at Peter T. Ream Historic Park.
"It's always a fun day. With the nice turnout and blue sky, what a good way to end the year," said shepherd Kathy Playdon. "This year we've got tons of people out and actually more carrots and apples than the sheep can eat."
Around 50 living lawnmowers took over the Fort Heritage Precinct this summer.
"The kids when they first come, they're a little afraid of the sheep. Then they learn to really like the sheep and then they come regularly like it's their pet sheep. So that's nice to see," added Playdon.
The flock of around 50 sheep is now off to their winter home, a farm near Stony Plain.
