Bathing with Water Buffalos

Water buffalos enjoy bathing in the Ganges and mostly in summers when the heat
becomes unbearable in Varanasi (Benaras).
This is one more picture that I shot one evening nearby Nepali ghat along the holy waters.
Most of the time those animals refuse to go back to the ghat and then the shepherd has to be creative in order to make them leave.
Water buffalos have been domesticated however their behavior sometimes differs from cattle.
For example, most water buffaloes are not trained to be driven.
Instead, the herdsman must walk alongside or ahead of them.
They then instinctively follow.
