What is the difference between shepherding and sheepherding (sheep herding?)?
What is the difference between shepherd and sheepherder?
I had only heard shepherd until I found sheepherder on a page on the California minimum wage.
Sheep-herder is "a person who herds sheep in large numbers in unfenced country." It is a word used in USA.
Shepherding is also widely used in a general sense of guiding, helping or looking after. "He shepherded his grandmother through the process of upgrading her PC."
"Sheepherding" is strictly managing actual sheep.
