Shouldn't there be a Bernard carrying a small barrel of rum on his neck?

Sheep Ha Ha story...Years ago I had a job that worked closely with BLM and Fish & game. Lots of projects we had to get booth to agree on times frames or other matters. We used to run sheep through as a fire control method. Let the sheep eat the grass so less to burn. In this instance the sheep were ran through 3 weeks prior. BLM brought this brand new guy out for the meeting, he was a recent grad from AG school in Cal. He was talked up as to be an expert and could really do us some good. The meeting we were having was about, based on population studies in this area, how big of water tank do we need to put in for range animals. This guy sees all the sheep **** from 3 weeks earlier and said we had the largest population of deer he has ever seen. He recommended one of those 40 foot water truck trailers, like the "rain for rent" type. His helper who had been on the job many years but no degree, called him aside and tried to explain the difference of sheep **** and deer ****. But the helper couldn't convince him...
he said he studied **** for 6 years and he knew what **** was[emoticon]

Yes, there was a black one in the group. I forgot to sing "Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?" when I saw it, though. [emoticon]

path1: Great story. Goes to show "on the job training" is what counts. [emoticon]

The flocks of sheep are still fairly common in the Nevada outback but not as common as they used to be. The "government experts" who realized that grazing down the vegetation lessened the severity of range fires such as have plagued us this summer were in the past few years overruled by the "government experts" who consider any livestock on public lands as no more than locusts, so permits for grazing have been cut way back.

Here's a shot from 3 years ago...note the fancy "RV" the sheepherder lives in:

Ralph, you must not be ramblin in the Northwest very much. Next up, pictures of a herd of cows. Seriously though, camp on NFS, and it's likely.

But, you might want to watch being too far in the mountains during fire season.

Great photos. I have decided I like to eat lamb more than beef (except for the occasional bone-in rib eye). There are some great local farmers who sell me a whole lamb (cut and wrapped) for a very fair price. We are taking off for Canada in a few days and are taking some lamb shoulder skewers, a lamb roast or two, some ground lamb, and some nice packages of lamb chops. Isn't it great to be traveling with a freezer in your camper? Hopefully we will catch a lot of fish and alternate between salmon, halibut and lamb. Should keep us alive for 6 weeks.

Happy Camping!
