Strange encounters of the bovine kind…..

It appears that Walt or Dreamworks have been at work in the fields of La Moussiere whilst we slept last night. Trigger and I had a chat with these virtual Parthenay cattle whilst on our morning constitutional or during the current acid trip – I can’t be sure which. Any way, they weren’t very impressed with us. In the scale of things Trigger and I would have made no more than a light breakfast for these beasts, had they been carnivores. They seemed to feel that looks are everything and, as we certainly didn’t look good enough to eat,  they were getting back on the grass or weed, whichever took their fancy. A large white rabbit bounced past, tipping his hat, and we set off for home. Maybe a few of those delicious mushrooms for breakfast.

  1. This needs to be posted with http://www.lesvachesdetours, particularly as the tour starts in the Vendee this year.

  2. Yep, they’re definitely not impressed with you! Great picture.

  3. They look like they expect some treats…

  4. This photo is fantastic! The cows actually look dismissive! Then again, they’re cows and are pretty much nonchalant towards anything not grass or grain.
