Moo



Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

I too love that quote!Was the grumpy looking bovine in your yard?

Hi ! I'm Cindy said...

Great shot!! You can even see the steam coming from it's nose!! LOL!

Mildred said...

I love the expression!

Cedar ... said...

What a great quote! That animal looks cozy in its winter coat. Perfectly natural for an animal of that breed to be shaggy this time of year. Betsy, usually the only cattle that receive a bath are those about to enter the show ring. Then they even get their tails combed and hooves polished! Grandkids show their 4-H cattle. It's fun.

Shell,
I was going to say the same thing as Cedar. They are all dirty this time of year. Love the photo you captured with the steam coming out her nose.

I've been thinking that lately. You have to be strong and have confidence, and be persistent, and not let those naysayers bring you down. That's good advice.

I love that Dennis Wholey saying!! :) I should add it to my signature.

You have some wonderful things on your blog Shelly. I especially like the butterfly. :)

Darla said...

Is that his breath I see coming out of his nose?

Judy said...

That's a awesome cow picture! It looks so calm....I wonder if it's thinking...charge!! lol.

The quote is soooo true!

Have a wonderful weekend, Shelley.

Sue said...

The picture speaks to me. It says run!

Shellmo said...

Thank you everyone for visiting! By the way- the fence that was surrounding this cow consisted of 2 wires only knee high! I can only assume that it's an electric fence?? And Sue - when I stepped out of the car and was snapping photos only 10 feet away - I did think I should be running! LOL!
