Documentation for a Demeter farm in Brandenburg. Many days I spent with water buffaloes, Galloway cattle, sheep and donkeys. I especially wanted to "study" the water buffaloes far beyond the actual documentation work. They are fascinating animals. Experiencing them and "living with them" was a moving and powerful experience - also physically after a while, as water buffalos rarely pass each other without touching each other. At some point they did with me too.
Galloway cattle are more distant and it took me a long time to "be allowed" to get close to them, but they have the same friendliness as the water buffaloes. Maybe with a little more vanity.
