Up close and personal


A few strands of wire and posts.  That's all it takes for the fence to be effective! I'm always amazed that cattle, for the most part, keep inside the fence lines. This fence isn't even electrified. they don't realise their own strength!

But they are very inquisitive creatures!  This herd of dairy cows were more than keen to come close to the fence and make our acquaintance!

And they came closer...




...and closer...


...and one girl was very keen to get to know us!  Up close and personal!

The fence never bothered her, anyway...lol!
Thanks for dropping by and for all your comments on my sheep post last week! I really enjoyed reading all your comments!  

Linking again with TexWisGirl and Good Fences ! Make sure you visit and see lots more!

  4. I love cows and have a fence round my old caravan in a field of cows, calves and a bull but sometimes they do damage the !barded wire

  8. Good point about those fences, but sometimes the cows do push them down trying to get to the good grass on the other side!

  20. I love cows. I've stopped a few times to take pictures. Sometimes they come to greet me and other times they take off running. I wonder if they cows that don't run are more used to being around people or just happier cows

  24. Wow I guess they were quite curious weren't they, it always amazes me too how they don't need a very strong fence

  25. Cows are so funny, they always think the grass is greener on the other side. Hugs, Lecia

  26. My husband's parent's live on a farm and when I stop to visit the cows, I'm always amazed by them, too. They are such gentle creatures and no, they really don't know their own strength. Great pics and Happy Memorial Day!
