Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

On our walk last night we came across a newly fenced pasture with a horse and 2 young-ish cows (ok, maybe steers, I didn't look - bovine meat creatures.) As we approached the near corner of the pasture, the horse took mild notice of us, turned a bit but was mostly unimpressed.

The bovine creatures, however, came running at full speed from the far back of the pasture. Right up to the fence. Ami also proceeded to prance with high interest towards the fence (I didn't let him too close -"fence" was 2 lines of wire on temporary fiberglass rods - probably electric Shocked ) At which point, horse thought this was getting interesting enough for him to check it out.

As Ami proceeded to prance, jump, play bow, and twirl around, the bovine creatures joined in and jumped, bucked and ran back and forth along side the fence. Horse trotted back and forth, now really interested also. Ami actually barked once. Never heard him bark before, usually just a basso profundo woo-woo. After watching this for a bit, it dawned on me that the fence was not particularly sturdy and bovine creatures, though young, were still pretty substantial. With hooves. So I urged Ami on and we walked beside the fence while the creatures ran and danced beside us 'til they could go no more.

Cows, when handled often, are not all that different from dogs in my experience. I grew up on a cattle farm. We had horses and cattle. Sometimes the horse would chase the cows and sometimes the cows would chase the horse. Our current cows love to chase my old black dog, though he's gotten where he will just lay down and wait them out, but they will stomp their feet and moo at him to try and roust him out very similar to what other dogs do to encourage play. You may not see it as often with large farms with hundreds or thousands of cows but small farms with owners who spend a lot of time touching or hand raising their animals tend to have more interesting and lovable cows, which only makes it harder when it comes time to eat them. They will be a fun new aspect to your walks, I'm sure.
