Cows are plentiful around here. There aren’t many big milking or beef farms close by so, thankfully, almost all of the cattle I see are content, happy, naturally fed, bred, and raised. Although their time may be limited and their fate predetermined, it makes me happy to see that these guys, at least, get to live a healthy, natural life just being a cow in a field with a nice warm barn and regular feedings until their time closes in.
They are very smart and sweet animals. If you ever get a chance to make friends with one, it’s something you’ll never forget. The cow above watched me the entire time I was taking photos.
This little one was curious but not curious enough to stick around long. He high-tailed it back to the barn where mama was waiting for him, nervously peeking out at me now and then.
That white fuzzy belly though. So cute. I hope this little one gets to live a long, happy life never knowing what his future may hold.
