Until the cows come home

We saw a cow parade today. About 18 of them, trudging single file along an imaginary line in the middle of the field. Dairy cows, black and white ones. John said they were ready to be milked and this is what they do. I don't know how John knows all this stuff except he grew up in the country. It was something to see though, all these cows methodically walking toward the barn with such intent - no farmer, dogs or anyone else encouraging them. The cows just know what to do. We speculated there is a lead cow and she apparently calls the shots to get them all moving.

This city girl found it quite intriguing.

    Black and white cows in Wisconsin? Holsteins.

    Moo!

    When it rains, they line up along the fences... When they "march" across the field, they are actually following a "cow path"

    They don't call us "cheeseheads" for nuthin'

    You should have stopped for even more experience. I am sure that the farmer man or woman would have let you help with the milking. If that wouldn't bring you back to the city, I don't know what would.
