T.G.I.F.: It’s a beautiful day (Cow-style)

cab·in fe·ver: Irritability, listlessness, and similar symptoms results from long confinement or isolation indoors during the winter.

32F yesterday with chilling winds.  Spring can show up any time so we can frolic around like Dairy Cows in Holland.  I’ve been around cows.  I’ve never seen this before.  Here’s 30 seconds of happy (very) wrapped in U2’s “It’s a Beautiful Day.”

  1. I too have been around cows, and these are just the most exuberant bovines I have ever seen!! Maybe they were really pumping that song through some loudspeakers to get them frolicking? 😉 Happy Friday David.


  2. Happy cows 🙂 Mooooouuuhhh


  3. Giggling–that is some UNGAINLY joy they got going on there! Love it. And for the record, I, too, grew up around cattle and I have never seen such an exhibition of unbridled happiness. Those folks in California with the cow commercials need to know about these bouncing bovines, that’s what I’m thinking…. 😉

    I have seen a few videos where cows let out of their winter barns onto green pasture go nuts in joy.


  5. Can’t open vids until computer fixed – sorry


  6. First for me too. Fun.


  7. Where these cows returning from a trip to Amsterdam? Just wondering.


  8. I didn’t know cows could move like that. 99% of the time they stand like dull creatures and chew.


  9. Awww, look at those happy cows. I love cows (and I’m vegetarian, remember, so it all fits)…and this reminds me of when I used to drive my young son the long way to his school…near the hills where we could see cows. My poor teenage son, he was so happy when he got his driver’s license and could drive himself…and not the long way! He’ll remember me for sure with my saying things like, “Look at that cow! It’s happy, I can just tell!” or “Look at that cow lying down and resting in the sunshine!” or even “Poor cow!! Having to just stand there in the rain…” I’ve threatened to start a blog titled Clouds and Cows ~ because I noticed both all the time on those drives to school in the morning ~ beautiful cows and beautiful clouds. Yeah, I already know…a bit nuts here. 🙂 Anyway, I Ioved that video of those happy cows.


  10. Makes me want to move! And, gets me dreaming about that ‘ah it’s spring’ feeling (which is not here yet in Iowa!)…thanks!


  11. Yes, those are some happy cows! They know its Friday…that is what we will look like at five o’clock 🙂

    Never seen cows like that either. Maybe it’s mad cow disease…LOL.


  13. Happy cows = happy life! Growing up on a farm in rural Sask, I can tell you that cows will dance and jump around like that – it’s great fun to watch. They are playful and delightful creatures … Dad always named his favorites “Lady” and “Belle” and his least favorites “Bossy” and “her.” HA HA!!


  14. It is Monday morning and these happy cows are what I am going to think about as I head into the week. 🙂
