I just had to stop and take this shot. Here is an example of those cows I have written about. This is a whole herd of young bulls and when I mooed at them they perked right up and started following me. I spend up and they started running after me. When I stopped they would all gather round right against the fence and stare at me like I was their god. They looked so foolish that I had to take their picture and here it is. I though that perhaps the farmhand that usually feeds them or something might always wear something yellow and so when they saw my yellow jersey they thought I was him. However, when I related this story to a farmer I was staying with he just laughed and said, "Son, do you know what time of year it is? Those were young bulls, they weren't thinking about food!" Ahem, well yes, perhaps I will try to moo a little less sexily. ;-)
