Stone Johnnies

These are also called Sheepherder's Cairns [click here].

A particularly nice one here.

The comment for the photo is one I have heard for a large cairn field in Hallstead, NY: that they were built by sheep herders to pass the time!

They made the slightly more interesting claim that these cairns are restricted to places where sheep hearding occurred.
