Other Cultures

Postby Bestoutwest » Thu Dec 28, 2017 6:16 pm

Apparently I got on the weirder side of Youtube again. I'm always blown away by what other cultures find entertaining. I'm not passing judgment on it, just that it's interesting. Action starts about 2 minutes in. And what kind of cattle are these?
