Music The flight zone is the distance that the sheep want to maintain between us and them. We can influence this on the way that we approach the animals and the amount of movement that we use. As you can see when we walk through the sheep quietly and calmly that they move away from us. This distance is referred to as a flight zone. You can clearly see that the flight zone around us is perfectly round. By increasing our movement we can increase the distance of the flight zone between us and the animals. The more movement, the bigger the distance. If we take the movement away, the distance will get smaller. The flight zone is always round and this helps us to understand that sheep move around us in a curve. Music .
