At times I had anything from 2000 to 10,000 or more sheep on the roads, eating grass and drinking water on the stock routes. This, when the seasons wero favorable, was considered a cheap method of keeping sheep, as there was only the droving charges to pay which would cost on an average about 50/ per 10000 per week.

These routes, however, were leased to station owners and se lectors, and many times they wero bare ot food, partly, in some cases, through the lessees eating out the grass by overstocking them after good summer rains, when there was sur face water.
