India, Rajasthan, Cows Working Water Well, 1984 - This photograph shows how the Rajasthani farmers used animals to pump water from their wells. Some farmers used cows, some camels and, at one well, a cow and a camel shared duties. The farmer would ride them down a slope (such as seen here) with a yoke around the animal's neck, then hop off at the bottom and lead the animal back up to the top.
