Animals on the Road In Nicaragua

Pigs on the road.

In another post I briefly talked about animals on/along the roads in Nicaragua. They may be tethered or may roam freely. I’m told that the owners keep an eye on them and bring them back in every night. Theft is not an issue according to the guide who talked to us about them.

Here are just a few of the animals that we saw roaming freely. I didn’t have a chance to get a picture of the cow in the middle of the road as we were riding in a vehicle but it didn’t want to move until the driver honked the horn! Here are just a few animals we saw on the road.

  1. In your shot with the horses, etc., there appear to be rugs hanging on the fences. Is this so that the rugs can be beaten to be cleaned? Or is this a sales site? Inquiring minds want to know.

    1. Not a vendor selling rugs for sure; this is a short side path to get to the hotel (we were the only guests the days we spent there!) and whatever is beyond the hotel. The rug is on the property next to the hotel so I don’t know anything about it.

  2. So, not all brahmas are white like Little General, the live mascot for MacArthur High School, back in the day. For some reason, I thought that they would all be white. Any idea why they have brahmas there as opposed to other kinds of cattle?

    1. Mostly the brahmas are white and I have no idea why they are so common; or conversely, why they were chosen as the mascot for MacArthur High School.
