As Sure-footed as a…. Bank Cow?!


As I sat down on a rather windy afternoon I was watching the cows in the field opposite. Firstly I wondered how they knew to stick together and who the “leader” was.


As I was watching ‘Danger Cow’ came forth. This small cow (not a calf or adult, the cow equivalent of a youngster) seemed determined to eat the grass growing closest to the water on the river bank.

I rose from my seat and watched with more #interest now, mostly as I had never seen a cow fall into a river before. I was #astonished at how this large beast balanced so elegantly, and though it lost its footing on a few occasions, it managed to stay dry.


As #time passed the cows went on their usual walk and were soon out of sight - but one stayed behind, and yes… you guessed it… It was Danger Cow! I pondered if this cow was just more confident and didn’t need to follow, or if it didn’t get on with the rest of the herd, or what the #story was?


Then I had a thought, if we try new things however tricky they may seem and don’t just follow the crowd like sheep, that’s often when people notice us for who we are.
