Under Sunny Skies/ Sky Watch

Who could resist spending the day basking in the sun under a blue sky such as this? Don't these lovely representatives of the Limousin family look like they are in the moo-ood?

Who are the Limousins, you ask? A very old and respected family with good breeding. In fact, cave drawings said to be 20,000 years old feature cattle that strongly resemble these golden-red cows. Limousin cattle are native to south central France in the regions of Limousin and Marche, where the terrain is described as rugged and rolling with rocky soil and a harsh climate. Limousin cattle have evolved into a sturdy, healthy and adaptable breed.

And now, here's another question for you:
Q: What do you call a grumpy cow?
A: Moo-dy
Oh, Pleeeeze! Not that old joke again.
I am NOT amused.
Now THAT was funny!

They look a bit unimpressed, perhaps not realizing that we are all enjoying their field and sky as well. Definitely an enjoyable and educational sky watch contribution. What fun this all is.
