Khangai Herds : part 5


This is the fifth segment of ‘Khangai Herds’, featuring herders and their herd animals co-existing together in the Khangai mountains of Mongolia.

Lhagva sings a song about her venerable mother. She explains to me the importance of cattle in her life, how she names them and nurtures them from birth. This is followed by a scene of a cow giving birth to a calf in a snow storm in spring. Lhagva names the newborn calf ‘Menget’ meaning ‘Birthmark’.
