Yeha cowgirl! Oppsy, I mean carabao girl!....lol....:)It was my dad who took this photo a few months ago during our 2nd visit to the Philippines. My mom said that Akesha was overjoyed seeing a carabao for the first time and she did not even hesitate to take a ride directly on the carabao's back.....lol! My mom told me that they only borrowed this carabao for Akesha. This was the time when my parents brought the kids (grandkids) with them to the farm.
According to Wikipedia, the carabao (Filipino: kalabaw; Malay: kerbau) or Bubalus bubalis carabanesis is a domesticated subspecies of the water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) found in the Philippines, Guam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and various parts of Southeast Asia. Carabaos are associated with farmers, being the farm animal of choice for pulling both a plow and the cart used to haul produce to the market.
