Training a Carabao to Plow in the Philippine Mountains

Philippines CaribaoTraining a Caribao to Plow in the Philippine Mountains is the only practical way to till the soil other than by hand.

Both the terrain and finances prevent any for of motorized soil preparation. Many Mountain farms consist of only 1-3 acres so it would not be practical nor viable anyway.

See Video below, taken on the first day home to the new owners.

Caribao Training

Training a CarabaoTo own a Carabao in the mountain is invaluable, they can haul heavy items to inaccessible area’s either by sled or over the back. Many people live in areas that trucks just cannot reach. The Carabao is a cherished possession and is pampered at every opportunity. But when it’s time to work the Carabao pulls through, pardon the pun.

As you can see, the sled used to drag heavy loads, they are also quite handy to ride, once they get used to it. Try jumping on a carabao that is not trained or that does not know you and you will likely hit the ground faster than you left it.

Just saying.
