These shots were taken about a week ago, when the snow first started falling, so we have a bit more on the ground as I type this, but being a former farm girl, I just couldn't resist sharing these "cow" shots. Nothing really gets them too riled up, as you can tell from the second and third photos, my getting out of the truck to make them some of the most famous cows on the Internet today, didn't faze them a bit. The one just stopped in his tracks and stared at me, long enough to snap his photo. Then the one in the herd of them eating, didn't want to be disturbed at all, we had to holler "Come boss" a number of times before it would even glance my way. Guess these Traprock Valley cattle weren't too impressed with being on the World Wide Web.

Just think how calm our souls would be if we could all just deal with life like a cow.

Oh I miss the days of being a kid and the Herferds and the black Angus on the farm. Our cattle came when called "here cows". When dad died I swear one the hardest part of his death was selling the cattle off. Our daughter did show our Guernseys through 4-H and FFA, those were good times!

Yes, there is a calming effect that comes over one with time spent around cow(s). When I was a small child we had a milkcow ("Bess") that fed mostly on hay/grain but my daddy used to attach a rope to her halter and lead her about 2 miles to a field where she could eat her fill of Johnson grass! It was like watching someone out walking their pet dog. Well, I guess "Bess" was his pet.:)

Some of the most beautiful sights UP here are the cattle and dairy farms. All free range. That's why the cows and cattle are so happy.
