Been on a lot of cattle drives in Utah, USA but never such a colorful one as this.

If you are in a shopping mood, you can get DVDs of the big Bakhtiari transhumance in 1925

Grass: A nation's battle for life,

Or the updated version of the early 70's:

People of the wind.

50,000 people and 1/2 million animals crossing the mountains in the snow barefoot to get to their pastures.

The above is colorful, but things are not what they used to be.
