I am Brother Simon

I look after all the animals that are part of life in the Abbey. We have horses to ride and pull carts, we have pigs, sheep, and cows to look after. There are some dogs to help round up the sheep and chase away foxes and wolves.

All the land round the town is wooded and sometimes flooded by the river so we have to be careful where we graze our animals, so we need the help of local people who are not monks.
