The herders in the rural area are mainly active in Xiayingpan from June to August. In summer, a hematoxylin will choose a place with rich water and grass to graze. The men go to herd cattle, sheep, horses, and camels every morning at 4 or 5 in the morning and then work in the pens. The women get up early to prepare for milking, morning tea (milk tea, hand-held meat, milk food), clean up the home, Make dairy foods. At six or seven in the evening, the cattle and sheep will find their way home by themselves (yes, they can find their way home). The men have to find the horse. It takes a long time to find the horse. The horse can run far. The grassland in summer is beautiful and attracts many friends from other places. The herders are very enthusiastic about drinking with their friends (milk wine, it tastes good with sugar, can not be blown, pour into the wind) and eat meat.
