What has changed is the way they created a relationship with time and space.
They inhabited another time and another space. Time is of the utmost importance
when one creates a flock. A common time, different from the previous flow of time, is
established, and this common time, this shared time creates the flock—it is a herding
time. Moreover, they changed the way they inhabited the space, the way they composed
with the space. We say compose with because to inhabit is at once to be transformed
by the environment and to transform it. Long-range transhumance is one of
these ways of inhabiting and so composing with a place, a space in time.
