BBBC #17 – Animal Rationale

Believe it or not, the “animal” prompt was easy for me. Some of you may be surprised by my choice. Others who have been following my blog longer won’t be surprised at all.

It's a Cow!

It’s a Cow!

I’m not sure why I like cows so much, I just do. And seeing this particular herd had me giggling, laughing, and just about dancing a jig.┬áBecause they were atop Splugen Pass in Switzerland. You can see the whole post here.

Such grand memories. ­čÖé

    Cows are cute in theory, but in person they are a little intimidating. Their size is quite large.

    By the way… 4:07 a.m.? That’s early!

      ShyB, some are big, but they come in all shapes and sizes. And I hear they’re very sweet, once you get to know them. Sadly, I haven’t yet had the opportunity to get to really know any cows.

    Cows! Please tell me I am not the only one who says “hello cow” whenever they pass a cow in a pasture……

      Only when walking and the entire herd is staring at you…

      I do, too.

    Kathy, I love cows too, and there is no better cow viewing than at the top of a pass in Switzerland! Moo!

    The only thing that comes to mind when I find a brown cow is to say “how now brown cow?” I once spent a night sleeping in a barn with a herd of cows when I was in the Boy Scouts. It was more restful then you might expect.

      David, that’s cool. I’m sure it was peaceful. Gentle little moos and snorts through the night.

      I really enjoyed the sound of cows in Austria and in Switzerland. They all wear bells. So, if it’s quiet in the countryside, all you hear are cows softly mooing and the gentle tinkle of bells. I remember asking a local about the bells. Every cow wears one. I was told it’s so the farmer can find the cows in the fog, which can be very thick at times.
