Bovine Bash

In addition to thanking the sun for the bountiful harvest, Pongal is also about thanking your cow for all the hard work it gave you the past year. It's party day for your livestock. Time to paint the horns, throw some flowers on the bovine, maybe ankle bracelets and have a little parade around the village. Feed the cows a special meal, treat the beast of burden like a beauty for a day.

Here's a little herd the day after the party, just hanging out, getting a chance to pick through some trash. Sort of like cleaning up after the party. A detail of the painted horns, etc..

Chomping down. Someday this cow will have full horns to decorate. For now, you cover what's there.
