In The Field

Once, when the Baal Shem Tov recited the Kabbalas Shabbos prayers in the field, all the flocks gathered around him and bleated the entire time he was davening. It is said that with his prayers, he lifted up all of the lower levels, until even the flocks and the herds attained a realization of G-d, and cried out with him.

(Divrei Elimelech)
