Mongolia, herd & young cow-boy

Mongolia is the real country of the cow-boys. Every of their moves and the way they are remind us of the old american westerns. But mongolian herding techniques are different from those of the cowboys of North America. Long sticks looped with rope are used instead of lassos, and once the livestock is separated from the herd, the herdsmen will often work from the ground, rather than their horse.
