Photographer's Note

This young lad is threshing - separating the grain from the chaff. He leads the cows around in a circle and they trample the wheat with their hooves and by dragging a wooden frame behind them. At intervals the men toss the wheat into the air so that the chaff blows away in the breeze and only the grain is left.

Initially the men were not keen on us taking pictures but after they got used to our presence they were OK with it - especially if we were taking shots of the children. Eventually we stayed here nearly an hour and I took many photos. The main reason I chose to post this one is because of the cow's tongue!
