A tall, lithe shepherd watches over his herd of “Inyambo,” special longhorn cattle bred for the king.   This scene of quiet beauty harkens back to an earlier, easier time.    Those who raise livestock in Rwanda today face many problems, including drought, environmental degradation from overgrazing, and shortage of veterinary services in remote areas.  Some who lack permanent settlements face famine because they cannot adequately care for their cattle.
