In August Ennis spent the whole night with Jack in the main camp and in a blowy hailstorm the sheep took off west and got among a herd in another allotment.
到了八月,埃尼斯整晚都和杰克待在营地,在一场暴风冰雹中,羊群被吹到了西边(好萌,我想起最近玩的一个养羊的游戏,叫云与羊的故事),和另一个牧羊人的羊群混在了一起。
 There was a damn miserable time for five days, Ennis and a Chilean herder with no English trying to sort them out, the task almost impossible as the paint brands were worn and faint at this late season. 
那是苦不堪言的五天,埃尼斯和一个不懂英语的智利牧羊人试图把羊分出来,这几乎是不可能完成的任务,经过这么长时间,羊身上的烙漆已经被磨损的很难辨认了。
Even when the numbers were right Ennis knew the sheep were mixed. In a disquieting way everything seemed mixed.
虽然最后数目是对了,但埃尼斯知道里面混着别的羊,令人不安的是,似乎一切都开始混乱了。
The first snow came early, on August thirteenth, piling up a foot, but was followed by a quick melt.
第一场雪来得很早,在8月13日这一天,雪堆的能没过一只脚,不过之后很快就融化了。
 The next week Joe Aguirre sent word to bring them down—another, bigger storm was moving in from the Pacific—and they packed in the game and moved off the mountain with the sheep, stones rolling at their heels, purple cloud crowding in from the west and the metal smell of coming snow pressing them on.  
之后第二周乔.安奎尔就传话催促他们下山——另一场更大的暴风雪正从太平洋向这里袭来——他们停止了这场游戏,和羊一起下了山,石子在他们脚边滚动,紫色的云从西边聚集而来,即将到来的雪带着金属的味道催促他们前行
The mountain boiled with demonic energy, glazed with flickering broken-cloud light, the wind combed the grass and drew from the damaged krummholz and slit rock a bestial drone. 
这座山散发着一种魔力,在若隐若现的碎云的笼罩下发出了柔和的光,风拂过草地,穿过参差不齐的矮曲林和岩石的裂缝,发出了野兽般的怒吼。
As they descended the slope Ennis felt he was in a slow-motion, but headlong, irreversible fall.
他们下坡的时候,埃尼斯觉得他像是在做慢动作,但是很快的,他们还是无可挽回的到达了终点。
Joe Aguirre paid them, said little. 
乔.安奎尔付了他们工钱,简单说了几句。
He had looked at the milling sheep with a sour expression, said, “Some a these never went up there with you.”
他用一种挖苦的表情看着这些被混了的羊,说到,“这里面有一些从没跟着你们上去。”
The count was not what he’d hoped for either. Ranch stiffs never did much of a job.

羊的数量也没有符合他的期望。牧场的这俩伙计这趟活做的不怎么样。
