Although we live in the city, we are most certainly on a quest to eat much of our food “close to the source.” This often entails visiting the farms where our food is grown or raised. A couple summers ago, one of our first farm visits was to Kvam Family Farm in West Point, NE. While we were there, we decided it would be fun to hike out into the fields and say hello to their cows (when in Rome… right!?!?!?).
Every cow that we tried to approach just politely rejected us and walked slowly in the opposite direction…so when this cow actually stayed there…and not only that, but lifted her head in my direction, I got a little “spooked.”
It’s embarrassing to look back at the video and to see how docile these creatures really are, but I just have a fear (as slightly irrational as it may be) of most any animal that weighs more than I do!! LOL!
