Stupid cows what goes through their heads
« on: March 20, 2012, 11:45:15 AM »
I'm in the house and heard a huge uproar outside. Had a new calf last night so figured the new pup was getting too close, she hasn't figured it out to stay away yet. So I run to the door to yell for, at, her and she is on the porch. I look into the pen and the cow is bawling and chasing, wait for it, pigeons. She is upset at birds in the pen. She was standing over her calf watching them fly around her.

Pigeons make me mad too so I can relate to the cow.  I use a shotgun.  Good for the pup staying on the porch.  I used to have a Jack Russell terrier that would lay on the steers during the day and periodically get up and chase all the birds out of the corral.  Maybe you need one like that to help this old cow out.

At least she's trying..LOL  BTW I had a vet tell me a couple weeks ago that cows are smarter than horses  ???

Our problem down here in South Texas are the crackels... by the thousands, making the entire barn a mess.  Messing all in the water and feed troughs..  major PAIN!!

My Mini Schnauzer catches the odd one but I told my son that he is now free to shoot them. When we feed the show calves they are right there eating with them and that made me mad.
 Its just funny to see a cow looking at the sky for trouble. The look on the pups face was funny too, she looked right at me like saying " it wasnt me, I didnt do it this time".

Some of our cows actually jump into the air trying to chase birds. Nothing looks weirder than a cow with both front feet off the ground, head high in the air, trying to get a bird!
Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you cows... and that's pretty much the same thing.

 This was the ultimate of stupid cow things at our place.  This was about 20 years ago now and we quickly got rid of these feeders after this incident.  You have to look at the pdf file attached to the bottom will retry to scan as a picture

When I was about 18 I was helping one of our neighbors haul cows to pasture and things were not going well.  He asked me if I knew why there were no cows in the circus.  I said I hadn't thought about it but did not know the answer.  His reply was that quote "they are too f*&%#@$ stupid".  I seem to think about that conversation every time I put cattle through a chute.

Not really stupid, but when my cow gets out, she will come down to the house and stare in the Windows until she gets noticed.
 I just weaned her first calf last night and the cow is ten times more upset than the calf. He is already shut up and loving life not having to compete for grain. She's in the pasture mooing like crazy
Just because I own the ugliest cow in the world doesn't mean I can't be proud as heck of her. It also doesn't change my love of the game when she gets last every time.

On the dairy side of things...
We've got a pair of Guernsey sisters that eat Girl Scout cookies, BUT ONLY THIN MINTS AND PEANUT BUTTER PATTIES.
A holstein/jersey cross that prefers Orange Soda (Sunkist only, no Walmart off-brand BS)
and a Jersey who eats pringles.  But Barbeque only.

Thinking if we got a cow to eat Skittles we could get an endorsement from 'em.  They've always got crazy commercials, a cow eats skittles, it milks skittles, right?

My sons cow is named Biscuit Eater. Had a bag of those cheap crappy dog bones that my dogs wouldn't even consider eating. Not sure where the idea came from to offer her one, but she ate it right out of my hand!  We went through two bags of those things before it was time to send her to pasture.
