Aneen

Aneen, herd animals found throughout the Ninth World, are used as both livestock and labor in Badiseta. Nearly all of the meat eaten in Badiseta is aneen-bred, owing to the ease of aneen husbandry. Most of the ranchers live on the eastern plateau, where the fields are plentiful enough to regularly feed the beasts. Most of the aneen born in the west, closer to the Alrizon Mountains, are used for transportation, either riding or driving. The rockier region also trains those animals to maneuver through terrain.   Aneen used for transportation are regularly brightly decorated by their riders. Many make it a point to compare an individual's choice in decoration to their own and make a decision on that person's worth using it. As a result, the roads are often filled with caravans and single riders adorned with pennants, flowers and occasionally combinations of oddities that generate noise as the animal moves.   At least three times a year, communities hold festivals centered on aneen training and decoration. People from the region gather together to judge animals and their owners on their creativity and discipline. Winners often win purses of up to 100 shins after competing with dozens of other competitors. Winners are also rewarded with access to free goods and services from different shops. Those who have won several competitions in a row are known to brag about it, to the dismay of many.
