I have been learning a few things about cows. One broke free of its boundary fence and grazed in our yard, leaving evidence behind. I’ll bet it was cow, Right 44 Left 13130–the cow giving me the stink eye as I was trying to photograph it.
I took some more photos over the rainbow in rural Missouri—one of which was of my barn again. The owner has cleaned up around the thing and it doesn’t appear it will be torn down. The cows use it for shelter.
Did you know that a herd of cows will lie down at the same time according to the barometric pressure? I learned this lesson from my husband because I guess deer do the same thing.
Apparently, I have not spent much time in the country where animal farms are intertwined with the wheat. I have lived among the crops, not the animals. If I had, I would have known this. It was such an anomaly to look at a field of cows, all of them lying down.
The local newspaper is much like a blog. It’s the same as in the old days when it was written about so-and-so visiting someone in town. On the second page of the weekly newspaper was a story about cows and turkeys.
Cows stand as a group, and gawk at people/animals. They spook easily and will scamper off. According to the article in the paper, there were a couple of turkeys beginning to fight and it scared the cows off. They returned to stand as spectators of the turkey fight. I would imagine it was a funny sight.
That is the extent of my knowlege of cows. 😀
