Thursday 24 February 2011: For All the Cows
On me and Sonny's walks I am often caught talking to cows. They make me laugh the way they all come running over to nose about your business if you stop still for long enough. The phrase should be "curiosity killed the cow" not the cat.
When I came back from India I went straight up to tell them about how Indian cows are allowed to just walk all over the place and can sit in the middle of roads and cars just have to swerve round them because they are sacred. Holy cows, can you believe it?! They stared at me in disbelief.
This lot were crammed around a bale of hay whilst their calves hung about on the edge, too skittish to come near and very suspicious of this lady and her little dog who were mooing at them for no apparent reason.
I'm sure I found cows funny even before Larsson.
Here's to you, cows and thanks for all that milk.
