WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A SHEEP CAMP?

For those of you unfamiliar, a
"sheep camp" aka " Sheep Herder's Wagon", originated in the 1800's and is and evolution of the original pioneer canvas top covered wagon.  Sheep camps originated from the plains of Southern Wyoming & Northern Utah, and later migrated to Idaho and Montana, on account of the ever expanding sheep industry. These bow toped marvels, would later evolve from wooden wagon wheels to hay wagon running gear, and even car axles on occasion. They would later trade there canvas tops for metal roofs, Sheep camp stoves, windows and front doors. The sheep camp played a vital role in the sheep industry and still does today.Unlike there open range counterparts " cattle" , sheep, require the presence of humans and dog's to protect them from predator's. The sheep camp provided shelter for the sheep herder.After along days travel, the camp allowed a dry, warm place, to lay his head, and take shelter from the cold mountain nights, and wet and windy storms that can come up fast on the great open range.
