A shepherd herds and manages sheep, usually to raise them for eventual sale at a meat market. When used as a verb, the word shepherd means to guide something (like sheep); move them in the direction of where you need them next. For sheep, that often means from their pen to a field of grass where they graze. Thus, the shepherd shepherds the sheep into the area from their pen.

A pie is composed of pastry formed into a bowl that will have a staple food product which the baker selects (beef, vegetables, or fruit). With that done, the product could be called something other than a pie. When the baker adds a pastry cover (lid or top ) then bakes his or her invention, he or she has baked pie. The name shepherd’s pie suggests that mutton (the meat of sheep) got baked into the pie. While true, if the baker chooses to use mutton, the name shepherd’s pie applies to some edible food shepherded into the pastry bowl.

You know the title for prepared food products which were not all consumed: leftovers. Shepherd’s pie, a freshly-baked presentation of kitchen leftovers, provides a baker with a range of opportunity to spruce up an otherwise B record meal while functionally clearing the fridge of older, yet useable food before it spoils. I have seen the title”cowboy’s pie.” A pie will eat (taste) the same if the title changes; the pie itself stays the same. Cowboys herd cattle, as shepherds herd sheep.

Speaking of cows, western Americans favor the name cattle, and they detest the term boy when speaking to themselves and their tradition of herding cows. They enjoy cattlemen better. Jupiter Raccoon Removal pie works then, does not it? Additionally, it seems better than cowboy’s pie. Probably, we should go there, because cattlemen don’t usually herd cows, which reside in barns, create dairy products, and create small cows (calves).

Cattlemen herd steers to the meat industry. Steers, young castrated bulls, must be used up before they become oxen (massive feed-consuming beasts once used to haul heavy burdens in carts). We don’t need oxen anymore because we have trucks to haul heavy burdens. If you like to eat beef and hamburger, then you recognize the usage of steers. However, you probably don’t want to think about a pie made with leftover castrated bulls.
