Word definitions

ronza: entrust livestock to another’s care


Remember to watch the path when milking a cow entrusted to you.


When entrusted with the care of another’s livestock, one has to remember that the owner can always take back the animals at will.


One should always remember that holding something in trust or being in possession of something borrowed does not translate to ownership. You therefore cannot safely rely on such things.
