farmers with goats on leash - cattle market (india)

I took this photo at a cattle market I stumbled upon on the road in West Bengal (India).­

All the local farmers were there to buy and sell livestock (often young animals).­

There were many goats for sale on this market.­ I believe that most of the men present were Muslims, and goats are used for meat ("mutton") by Muslim people.­
