Mother, Daughter and a cuddled kid

Mother & Daughter posing for the touristsOn the way to Machu Picchu, we stopped at a small town to shop at a local bazaar. We wandered into the center of town to check out the local restaurants and met a Mother and daughter. They were dressed in traditional Peruvian clothing and the daughter is holding a kid (baby goat). The locals do this all over Peru and pose for the tourists and ask for money after you take the shot. We were aware of this practice and I am happy to support the locals and pay for our shots. The one thing I do not know is what is up with the kid holding a kid? There has to be some reason for the carrying of a kid, but to this day I haven’t been able to figure this out. So if you know, please leave me a note explaining the significance of this tradition. Thank you.
