Droving

Droving is the practice of moving livestock over large distances by walking them "on the hoof".
Droving stock to market, usually on foot and often with the aid of dogs, has a very long history in the Old World. The settlement of new land in Australia and North America led to drives of sheep and cattle over great distances by men on horseback, supported by wagons or packhorses. See Drover (Australian) and Cattle drives in the United States.
