The quality of a sheep's life, their health with the flock and even their reproducing, is dependant upon the quality of what they regually feed upon along with the faithfulness of their shepherd.
Well-fed, loved n cared for sheep are happy, healthy and subsequently they naturally reproduce to the glory of their God!
Knows their names, personalities, individual quirks and day and night he stays close with them.
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.." Psalm 23:1-3a
