This white cow is checking out Sparky, who's decided they probably aren't a threat after all.
The white cows like to come close and nibble the bramble vines.
This one seems the friendliest. He always looks up when I come out.
I thought maybe we'd seen the last of the cows for this year, but the other day I spotted them in the pasture. I guess it's the mild weather we've been having that has them out there kicking up their heels, nibbling the grass.
These guys are quite sociable, and don't seem to mind the dog barking. And the dog seems to have come to peace with them. He gives a perfunctory bark and then pretends to be all interested in non-existent squirrels.
I think maybe he's decided they aren't as big a threat as the mailman.
