A short strange cow tale - The Land of Moo

A short strange cow tale

Sep 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Birds and Beasts

There I was, wandering around in the pasture, checking every tall stand of grass and cluster of brush for the day-old calf that was hiding somewhere out there in the pasture.

And I saw this . . .


Rosie apparently had a bad itch.  Her daughter, one of the twins from two years ago, helped her scratch it.


Actually, she licked it better.  It’s a weird way to deal with an itch but I suppose creatures without fingers and opposable thumbs have to work with what they have.


I did eventually find that calf.

    Hi, I just found you through CITR and am in love with your property. I live in another land of MOO (holsteins) in St. Helens, Oregon. I can never get the cow to lick where the itch is, can you?

    Lisabeth – Mine lick what they can reach, and I try to make sure that’s not me when they’re in a licking mood. Love my cows but I could do without the cow slobber.
