A Baloch shepherd, from a 1900 photo
Fred Bremner,  ~1900[This and other photographs are from Fred Bremner’s My Forty Years in India (1940) which was re-issued in 2007 by Pagoda Tree Press.]"The journey through the Bolan Pass is barren, devoid of any trees or even a blade of grass, only steep mountains on either side, and yet there are to be seen flocks of sheep - grazing on what! One wonders until they are told that the soil contains a herb which the sheep find and by their appearrance it is evident they fatten on the product. I never saw such healthy looking animals anywhere and covered with great masses of woolly coats. The mutton in Baluchistan is famed for its fine quality. Honestly I have never tasted better anywhere, not even in Scotland." (Forty Years, pp. 30-31)
