Somalis do not ride camel back casually.

The reason is because, camels are not seen as animals but like a family member. Only the weak such as children, pregnant women if they are unable to walk.

At times, camels carry family belongings when moving or are used to fetch heavy water load from long distances.

Somalis should definitely start riding camels and learn horseback riding.


These animals if properly fed and looked after, could serve as useful means of transportation for the nomads
Most Somalis used horses as light cavalry for raiding etc but all of that came to end after British colonialism and then the Somalia state. I don't know why Somalis don't use horses for grazing animals. Only a minority do.

Truthfulness so often goes with ruthlessness

True we can also use watch dogs to guard our sheep. We had a dog in Somalia called John and he did pretty damn good job in keeping the fox at bay.
