Sheep Corral

Copyright (c) 1994 by Patricia Mae Young

Every spring sheep are herded from the plains to the high country grazing lands. Every fall they are herded back. The sheep are patiently guided through narrow Sun Valley along the highway, giving tourists a close-up of the sheepherder's life. Riding horseback with their sheepdogs guarding the herd, and the mule pulling the sheepwagon, the sheepherder moves at yesterday's pace, a fact those in the fast lane find hard to take.
