These aren't just your typical cows, just ask them!  Not only are they Irish Dexter cows, a rare breed originating in Ireland (you didn't guess that did you?) the smallest breed of cattle, but they believe they are human.  And not just human, but more specifically princesses, divas and even sometimes drama queens - Jersey housewives have nothing on these cows!

From L to R: Rosie, Wallie, Sunshine, Zumie and Daughter #3
They can sniff out a cow cookie at 50 paces, and know exactly which pocket and even which hand holds said cow cookie.  They are relentless in their pursuit of cow cookies.  

Daughter #3, Zumie and Wallie
No finger shall go unlicked, no pocket shall go unsniffed.  These cows of podunk are not shy and retiring.  They have a mission, and neither rain nor sleet nor dark of night will deter them.


And when you run out of cow cookies, they will follow you to the ends of the earth, across the pasture, even up on the side of the trailer, all just to be double - nah, triple sure that you are REALLY, REALLY out of cow cookies, because it is simply beyond their comprehension how we could let this happen when they are clearly not finished eating cow cookies.


Even thought it is perfectly clear when looking at their slightly chubby figures, they might want to check out what cow diet options might be out there - Cow Watchers, Jenny Cow-raig, Low Cowrb, South Beach Feedbunk.


And then when we drive away, they give us the evil eye.  Luckily, cows have a short memory, and so tomorrow when we drive in the pasture the hunt for cow cookies begins again!

  1. So cute! I can spend the whole day just playing hide and seek with them. And come back the next day to do the same thing over and over again!
