shepherd character was afraid to dominate the course of events.It was the interrogation of the fate concept.He didnt said fate for the things that he has faced just once.But fate was always his mind therefore he exhibited cowardly attitude.When herd perished,he said that was their fate.At that time he understood that he was part of the herd which escaped death.he turned into sheep not visually but psychologically.
