Cows Waiting to be Fed

These cows seemed to be paying attention to each other as they waited for the man to unload some food from his truck.  We will see if the cows share nicely.

These are brahma cattle, with their characteristic long floppy ears, boney hump at their shoulders, and loose skin under their chin.  Brahma are well adapted to warm and humid climates.

This week we have photos of the Sepik River tribes and villages posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

When I was a kid working on farms in Minnesota during the summer, the cows always knew when it was milking time and when it was time to eat. I just had to stand out in the field and call "Come boss!" and they came. Magic.

Thanks for your comment on Ocala. You had me laughing out loud!

A little chat before dinner.

Long floppy ears? Hump on the back? Flapping skin under the chin? I could have been a brahma . . .

That's quite a beautiful photo. Liquid eyes, as they say. Carolyn's family farm had Holsteins.
