“Cattle-men hate sheep, because they eat the grass so close that cattle cannot live on the same ground. The sheepherders are a…melancholy set of men…with no companionship except that of the bleating idiots they are hired to guard. Intellectually a sheep is about the lowest level of brute creation; why the early Christians admired [the sheep]…is to a good cattle-man a profound mystery.” (T. Roosevelt; Hunting Trips of a Ranchman)
