It was only when I began stopping to photograph the bovines that I realized how curious they are.
The other day, while tooling around Warrenton, I decided to head out Bear Wallow Road.
Having spotted that road name on the map, I couldn't not check it out. Right?
It's not far at all outside of town. In fact, it may even be within the town limits.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a herd of cows AND a convenient place to stop.
Of course, the cows were checking me out, too.
The little one was particularly curious.
It had a little friend across the field that appeared quite intrigued by me, too.
|"Mama Moo, I'm going to go check out that really bright, alien-looking thing over there. Okay?"|
I was tickled seeing it make its way slowly and carefully across the pasture toward me.
How cute is that little face?
He seemed happier once he was next to his friend. I guess even cows find security in numbers.
Here's an interesting article (with video) about a herd of curious cows and a 6-month-old Boxer puppy.
I've heard that if you lay down in a cow pasture, they'll all come over to have a closer look.
I have yet to test that one...
