Part of their herd of young cows is grazing in the pasture across the road from Erika's and Christian's house. They provide quite a lovely view in the morning and again in the afternoon.
Last Saturday afternoon I noticed that most of them were lying down and I crossed the road to check them out up close. (Please ignore the spot in the upper right corner of the photos. I had a spot on my camera lens that I didn't notice until after I had taken the photos.)
At first, no one moved.
But then, one girl heaved herself to her feet and ambled over to check me out.
A moment later, another girl lumbered to her feet and followed the first.
Then another, and...
A few more,
and still a few more after that.
In no time, almost the entire herd was standing around staring at me (whilst pooping and peeing!)
I felt kind of bad that they had made the effort to come over to see me and I had nothing with which to reward them.
So I thanked them, in advance, for all the delicious milk they will be providing in the future, and headed back to our side of the road.
