Check out these delightful photos from Germany's Shepherds Championships

If you happen to be near Hohenfelden, Germany today, you may wonder what's up with all those sheep.

Actually, if you're near Hohenfelden, Germany, you probably know that shepherds from across the country are competing in the regional Shepherds Championships. The annual competition requires the men to use two sheepdogs and a lot of moxie as they lead 300 of the animals. Judges pick a winner based on which herd is deemed to have the best formation.

Check out the fascinating photos, below. --Sarah Eberspacher
