Hi Kevin. Your comment really amused me. Please do enlighten me, what does a sheepherder look like in America? And in what way will a cowboy and a sheepherder differ in equipment on their horses and why?
Here is a picture of a Norwegian sheepherder from the fall when we were in the mountains searching for and collecting our sheeps.
