A clue as to what these men ate most of the time appears in the drovers' song 'Brose fer ma breakfast, ma dinner an' ma tea...'

Of course, that was while they were actually driving sheep along the old paths, but peasant fare everywhere tended to use small amounts of high-protein stuff like meat mixed with lots of starchy fillers (which did contain other essential elements of their diet, particularly as it hadn't all been removed in some industrial refining process).

Wow caroig!

That is a beautiful peaceful retreat in the mountains. I love the surrounding trees and the isolation. I bet you can relax there and find a peace of mind away from the commotion of the cities.

Back to nature - I say.

Cheers!

It is, it's bliss.
By coincidence I'm off there tomorrow for an intensive week of painting and decorating, but it will still be a good recharge of the batteries.

And the drovers' song:

'Brose for ma breafast, ma dinner an' ma tea...'

All the sheepdogs I knew were fed on it, too - but some of them got milk with it.
