In Vietnam, water buffalo are often the most valuable possession of poor farmers: “Con trâu là đầu cơ nghiệp“. They are treated as a member of the family: “Chồng cày, vợ cấy, con trâu đi bừa” (“The husband ploughs, the wife sows, water buffalo draws the rake”) and are friends of the children. Children talk to their water buffalo, “Bao giờ cây lúa còn bông. Thì còn ngọn cỏ ngoài đồng trâu ăn.” (Vietnamese children are responsible for grazing water buffalo. They feed them grass if they work laboriously for men.) In the old days, West Lake, Hà Nội, was named Kim Ngưu – Golden Water Buffalo.
