Herding is the act of bringing individual animals together into a group (herd), maintaining the group, and moving the group from place to place—or any combination of those. Herding can refer either to the process of animals forming herds in the wild, or to human intervention forming herds for some purpose. While the layperson uses the term “herding” to describe this human intervention, most individuals involved in the process term it mustering, “working stock”, or droving.
