tuesday muse - cow fascination

I admit it - I'm fascinated with cows
and I just couldn't resist stopping to see this cutie standing right next to the fence.


Our weekend guest, who was beginning to notice this fascination,
 asked - "Karen, has anyone ever told you that you have cow brain?"
Me - "uhhhhhh, nope... - ummm thanks?"

My friend - she's probably right.
Yeah - she was only kidding... I think...

  1. It was nice of him to pose for you. I have noticed that when I stop to photograph farm animals (especially cows & horses) that they will come closer for a better look at me.

  14. Oh my gosh, what a cute cow! I love how you can see the teeth. Great photo, Karen! I am a little obsessed with cows as well. We have some living in a field across from our property and when they are close to the fence I always head over there with my camera to see if I can get any good shots. My dream is to be close enough to pet one someday, but they always run away from me. I'll just have to get a cow of my own I guess :) And whenever I see little calves, I have to let out a squeal. Especially if they are running around having a good time. It's just too cute!
