El Calafate, Patagonia
By Gabriele Orlini

Patagonia is also known for its immense prairies that enhance a natural breeding of cattle and sheep.
Strong is the presence of horses in the wild, especially in the lands at the base of the Andes, along the Chilean border. In many farms (estancia) throughout the region, they still use to slaughter according to ancient native methods.
This practice involves cutting the throat of the animal that is then hoisted to the hind legs in order to drain the blood and finally remove the skin.

The immense grasslands of Patagonia are a fertile ground for many types of livestock, including sheep.
For their valuable fleece that is particularly warm and resistant, many multinationals in the textile sector have decided to acquire these lands (especially following the 2001 Argentine economic default even to the detriment of native peoples) for its production of raw material.
Herds in small farms do not provide large multinational companies but feed local and tourist trade.

Thomas
El Calafate, Patagonia
By Gabriele Orlini
01 Jan 1970

He raised horses in Cornwall.
Saw them born, with them he grew.
Inheriting this knowledge from his father, he knows everything about them: their ancient names - not those given by men- their sense of freedom, the wild streak that pulsates in every Thoroughbred.
Thomas is 24 years old and he loves drawing too.
He arrived from Europe with an unique huge desire: to hear the sound of the silence of a boundless land that has nourished the imagination of many generations before him and, after having absorbed every silent note, draw in his notebook just one line. The line that his eyes recognise in the horizon every day. .

There are many animal species that inhabit the boundless prairies of Patagonia, considering its size and the lack of human presence.
Among these there is the guanaco (like a lama), a skilled runner, much sought after for its meat and for its warm coat. For a very long time the main source of livelihood of the native populations.
Moving in flocks, the guanaco trapped in enclosures that have appeared in recent years more and more frequently especially in areas with higher population density, therefore becoming food for other predators such as foxes, Pumas, condors, etc.

Bernardo

Bernardo is a city boy.
He comes from the North, from an area of Argentina where the seasons still feature the rhythm of the days. Where the humid summers require to rest along the beaches of Rio de la Plata.
Bernardo is 24 years old, and from 4 years he spends his summer at an estancia in the Glacial Park, at the foot of the Andes.
Bernardo is not a huacho - his grandfather was - and maybe for the challenge of research and travel, he decided to retrace the history of his family coming to live and work where it all began. Because there is no future for who ignores its past and to move closer to the world's end allows you to scroll down to themselves.

Patagonian sheep are valuable for their fleece, particularly warm and durable.
In small estancia the herds are not serving the production of the multinationals textile company but the benefit of local and tourist trade.
The shearing, in these cases, is done by hand using scissors, denying shavers because tended to scare the sheep who not accustomed to loud noise.
The hand shears, task of the gaucho, becomes an art handed down over time.

The breeding of cattle, in Patagonia, is the second to that of sheep that actually represents the main source of income after tourism.
Low humidity, the climate and the abundance of pasture vegetation makes the cattle farming (pigs and horses) very high quality for the slaughter.
Also for this reason the Argentine beef is among the most sought and demanded around the world.

Santiago is 18 years old and in his country, Colombia, is studying to become a doctor.he
He chose to take a year off to travel to Latin America to discover the root of its origins.
And as a story that repeats, itself in his journey he is discovering a world, simple gestures, earning the respect and trust from the bottom, getting your hands with those that trample on the ground for a living it.
Santiago will return to his country (and maybe today is a brilliant doctor). To the Fin del Mundo, Santiago came with a promise made to his mother: "never lower our gaze".

Patagonia Landscape

Patagonia, the Land of the Giants, spreads out between Chile and Argentina for more than 900,000 km2. It’s a region of wide plains and plateaus, light vegetation and it is almost uninhabited (2 habitants per km2) also because of the constant cold winds and hard terrain.
Patagonia has always fueled the imagination and passion of travelers and writers from all around the world.
One of the first European explorers, Magellano, gave the name of Patagão to its residents probably because of their height and primitive costumes (they wore leather and ate raw meat).
In the world there is no region like Patagonia, who is able to charm with its endless horizons, to misplace or recover even the more sharp-eyed traveler.
