They're carrying bundles of hay on their heads so it has to be a poor Southern country. Hot and Dry!
It's a very warm climate. It's a sunny day.
These people have practically nothing on - or as little as possible.
They're farmers and they've been collecting their hay. Their wagon broke down so they're carrying it on their heads.
Or maybe they don't even have a horse or a wagon. No modern wagons!
I'd hate to have that hay on my head. It's heavy! Even a fork full of hay is heavy.
They're getting ready to feed all this hay to the animals. They have cows not horses because it is hay.
From the looks of things they have a long way to go! Blocks or miles.
They're saying "I'll help you. You help me."
It's a family affair. Maybe brothers and cousins.
They live in a camp. They live poor because they don't have horses or wagons. And they're walking on the ground not paved.
After they give the animals the hay they will take time to drink. They're thirsty.
They will talk about what to do next. They will rest and have a discussion.
They will talk about the hot weather.
And how long it took to get here.
"Boy this was a heavy load! Sure glad we got here!"
If they even have homes, they are pretty primitive because they don't have horses.
We are glad we don't live there. Not showing much around and it's primitive.
I'll tell ya one thing...I'm glad it's not me. Even when I lived on a farm I never saw anything like that. Never carried hay on my head!
