Me and My Goats

Along with the Friday Market, there also was a bit of action happening outside the gateway to Shaxi. Here, a livestock market was actively underway. Men and women were actively engaged in inspecting and haggling over cows, goats, and pigs.

Some of the pigs were not too pleased about the transaction. The large pigs protested as they were loaded up onto the trucks by their ear.  Despite the pigs' complaining, it did appear that the livestock were healthy and well cared-for.

As with the market in town, the livestock market felt very local and authentic - exactly what I wanted to see.
