    [] Actually she was part of a posse who were keeping a sharp eye on us. ;-)

    lol you "found" her ?
    I love the way cows never "really" look all that interested lol
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Well in that I was there, and so was the cow, and since I shot first, I found her ;-)

    Cows don't really look interested, do they, []

    You just reminded me of my friends favourite saying "Stupid cow!"; yes, they're from the U.K.
    Actually, this cow doesn't look that bright either now does it?

    I love cows, they have the most awesome eyes, full of depth! The bit of grass thats she's chewing just finishes it off!
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Thanks :)
    [] Oh but cows are definitely more intelligent than sheep. Sheep are absolutely the most stupid farmyard animal on the planet. I know, I used to keep some. Even chickens have more brains than sheep.
    [] Indeed, cows are such peaceful animals (and they provide us with milk and cream which of course leads to ice-cream!).

    sheep are indeed stupid, from the moment they are born they are looking for ways to die.... !!
  • David de Groot said:
    [] Yes indeed. There's a theory, quite often about birds & fish, where the flock/school is more intelligent than the individual. This however in no way applies to sheep, they're just as stupid in a flock as they are on their own.

    For a moment, I thought you'd managed to photograph the elusive cow on the lose near the Gateway Motorway at Boondall... but apparently not. :-) Great photo, either way.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] No but that was definitely the inspiration for posting it :)
  • Jon McManus said:
    I thought so! I heard all about it on the radio, and then I came home to this... too big a coincidence to be a coincidence. :)

    David, you've obviously not seen any of the Shaun the Sheep shorts, or you'd say they are intelligent... haha I know what you mean, I've been told by several people in the know that they are pretty much unintelligent.
  • David de Groot said:
    [] ;-)
    [] Oh I have, but that's what makes them more amusing, 'cause anyone who's actually kept sheep knows how unlikely those shorts are.
