Red Bulls Dream Means Good Harvest 2

When asked about their dreams, the four Konso elders hesitated, approaching the edge of embarrassment.

Then one started: "I was looking at two things: fat bulls and red bulls. When I see red bulls, I know I will have enough grain and sorghum. The harvest will be plentiful."

That broke the ice.  It seemed that red bulls are a fairly common dream among the Konso elders—an archetypal dream.

When all the elders had finished describing their different dreams, collectively we noticed that almost all had something red. No one could explain why red.
