Erosion is phenomenal here in Lesotho, producing some awesome scenery. Top left, a Mosotho herdsman and his dog stand atop of an erosion ridge... i'm not so sure i'd risk walking across that erosion 'bridge'... One can get quite lost in this maize of erosion 'fjords'...

Donkeys are a major source of transport as well as being excellent assistant herders. They protect the sheep and cattle by warding of attacking jackals. So effective are they that even some South African commercial farmers are puting these intrepid 'herdsmen' in use.
