This reminds me of a segment on one of the many news magazines last year
about a few farmers who had decided to enact some ancient rituals with their
farming. I remember few details, but was very intrigued with the results.
It seems to me part of the ritual involved the grinding and burial shed cow
horns. Or perhaps they were burned. I think these farmers were following
suggestions made in some recently-published book based on study of old
rituals (don't remember what source for these) and that there was some sort
of organization for these people. There was a fellow in New Zealand who was
following the "formula," and his results were quite impressive as well.
Anyone know/remember anything about this?
Dori's incantations to the deer would seem to fall right into this category
