    • Thanks, Dave. I looked to see if there was anything similar for water buffalo in Vietnam and found this info: In Vietnam, water buffalo are often the most valuable possession of poor farmers.They are treated as a member of the family: ‘Chồng cày, vợ cấy, con trâu đi bừa’, meaning ‘the husband ploughs, the wife sows, water buffalo draws the rake’.Hà Nội used to be named Kim Ngưu – Golden Water Buffalo.Do Son Water Buffalo Fighting Festival of Vietnam is held each year on the ninth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar at Do Son Township, Haiphong City in Vietnam. It is one of the most popular Vietnam festivals and events in Haiphong City. The preparations for this buffalo fighting festival begin from the two to three months earlier. The competing buffalo are selected and methodically trained months in advance. It is a traditional festival of Vietnam attached to a Water God worshipping ceremony and the Hien Sinh custom to show martial spirit of the local people of Do Son, Haiphong.
      Thanks for making me look to see what I could find (Wiki, thank you), results are always interesting!
