My wife are out geocaching and stopped in to look at a small, local museum. This was on the back of a Basque sheep wagon that is on display there. It is a Nov. 52 blackband.

That's pretty cool. Well, it certainly looks at home hanging out on the porch, there!

We used to go geocaching a lot back when...found some interesting stuff. One of the cashes had a spent disposable camera in it. I had the film developed and put the pictures and the negatives back in the cache. Let me tell you, I was very nervous to go and pick up the pictures...I had no idea what they were going to be of! Thankfully it was just random pics of the trails, vistas and some of the folks that visited the cache.

I've never heard of a sheep wagon before, and apparently, the search engines don't have access to much on them in the way of history.  You can find builders, sellers, plans to make one, etc, just minimal info on the history.   Other than the current novelty, any idea how recent they were generally used?  I'm suspecting that Coleman lantern isn't period correct, but I could be wrong.  🙂

Still used in some parts of Nevada and Eastern California. I've seen them in my travels over the years as recently as two years ago.

I used to see a sheep wagon every now and then on my way to Enterprise, OR.  I suppose the last time I saw it was maybe 10 years ago, but I don't get down that way as often now as I used to .

Sheepherder wagons are really cool.  Back in the late 70’s a herder asked if he could set up camp across the road from us since it was one of the few flat spots in the area.  Sure, as long as we got a tour of the wagon after dinner!  The wagon, that actually belonged to the rancher and not the herder, was immaculate, Well thought out and not a bit of wasted space.  Everything was made of wood and well maintained.

Still a few sheep wagons in use out here. A friend has one parked in his front yard that he and his wife spent thirty years living in. Lots of Basques, too, but the business has been taken over by Peruvians the last few decades. Not so many sheep anymore.

Lots of them in use here in Wyoming. Running on rubber tires now but look just like the one in Gunhippie's picture.

Same up in Idaho.  Lots of the basques ran sheep.  Not so much anymore.  My dads next door neighbor is a peruvian with a few hundred head. Those wagons are pretty plentiful.  Used to go kn them as a kid and look around.  They Re all almost the same Inside.  As stated, very purpose built and no wasted space.

Indeed. I've seen and talked with the Basque sheepherders years back in the Toiyabe National Forest, in the area off Sonora Pass Road.  There are Aspen trees in that area with early Basque bark carvings.  Some are now protected historical sites.  A man, a dog, a rifle, a mule, and a tidy wagon.  These days, wish I could do the same!

Same tree carvings are up on Monitor pass on Highway 89 as well. not a protected area but the trees have grown so high that they're pretty much out of reach from being vandalized.
This was about 10 years ago at the time.

They are still used in UT also. Here are some photos from our annual sheep parade that we have every year in Cedar City. It is held in Oct. when traditionally, the sheep would be driven out of the summer grazing fields in the mountains back into the valley for the winter.  

Here is an old traditional one.

And a modern one that is just like a camper that you would buy off an RV lot.

We even have sheep go down main street.

We have several working sheep camps in my area. The shepherds nowadays are typically Chilean or Argentinian. 

Here's a place to get a really nice sheep trailer.
