At each farmstead, the capitaine visits ahead while the rest of his band wait on the road to see if the household will receive the Mardi Gras troop. If the owner says yes, le capitaine lowers a flag and the masked riders charge the farm on horseback, while the householder scurries to his rooftop, a chicken from his pen or other taste treat in hand. As the dismounted riders whoop and cavort in the barnyard, the farmer tosses his gift into the air.
A scramble for the prize ensues, sometimes involving wild leaps over pigsties and madcap chases through muddy, early-spring rice fields. Once the offering is bagged, it is sent back to town to be added to the brewing dinner pot, and as the runners depart the homestead, they sing their thanks and invite the household to the evening in-town feast. In city and countryside, Lent has begun, the 40 days of sackcloth, penitence and ashes. Carne vale , farewell to the flesh.
