Sheep Herder's Wagon


Sun Valley, Idaho

This is not your typical sheep herder's wagon that
 looks more like the Conestoga Wagon of the pioneer days.
  

He bought it from a sheep herder in Utah who was retiring.


The sheep are in the high country nearby.  The herders and their dogs will be bringing them down through here soon before the snow flies.  I saw a crew making repairs on a corral nearby during one of my rides.  I think I'll miss it as we have to move on this weekend.

    1. No. I would have liked to and included the pictures had I.

  2. A more modern version of the shepherds' wagons that used to be common here, allowing the shepherd to stay with his flock during lambing time.
