Livestock races are one of the most popular traditional Canarian games. The game consists of a series of races where cows and oxen are equipped with their ploughing equipment and made to drag sacks weighing hundreds of pounds along the ground. It is important to understand that the game not only poses no harm to the animals (the game's rules make sure of that), but it helps to ensure that the native species of cow is kept from extinction.
