Instagram : A place where all of us Farmers LOVE to highlight our favorite cows & how much they love us....a place where we leave out that more people die every single year from cows then from horses, sharks, or wolves. Actually... Cows are only beat by Hippos & Mosquitos. 😮•
• Omg but how!?! Well, to start, they weigh about 1500lbs. Accidental squishes can happen easily... And an angry cow can run up to 25mph.•
•This picture started out innocent, but 4720 decided she wasn't into it, & before I could move. She had me pegged against the gate. I tapped her face with my hand & she backed up...but she wasn't mad, She wasn't protecting a calf or herself. She was just sassy. If She'd had genuinley wanted to hurt me, I would've been hurt. Badly.•
•So for my city/non farmer friends. Cows are cute. Cows can be so incredibly loving....but please, don't go into a pasture or a pen without asking the farmers permission FIRST. They'll be able to tell you "watch out for the bull" or "Better not, we've got a few crazies in there." Better than anyone else can. 💛
And into the river and forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul. When I do things from my soul, I feel a river moving in me, an inexplicable joy.
The older I get, the more I realize and appreciate the value of time, privacy and digital detoxing. So grateful for days like these 🙏🏻☺️
