Cow in Front Yard/ SOOC

Not usually seen on city front lawns

But in the country it's not uncommon to be greeted by cattle as you drive up a driveway.

Good one. It might be convenient to have a cow around!

He looks like a friendly sort. Valerie

Looks like Bessy was interested in your camera as well.

Cute shot. Driving in and around Ocala, you'll find lots of such animals in front yards...horses, especially. The city has developed around horse farms/ranches.

Re Stone Creek - So far, they've sold about 800 homes...build-out is to be 4,000. It's been slow for a few years, but is picking up now.

I love the provincial look in the country. The cow looks like he wants to be a model before going to the vouchers hehe. just kidding. Great shots.

Having grown up in Wisconsin, "America's Dairyland," I learned how to do a great cow sound imitation! Our girls get a real bang out of it when I do it!
Mooooooo

Quite a charming one! In our area it's also very common to be crossing a "urban" stretch and then all of a sudden you're facing farms and cattle... :)
God bless you!

Yep, out in the country you never know what or who might be in the yard. Tends to be horses and goats here. MB

I love the framing! I'd love to be greeted by a moo when I get home and all that fresh milk!

Leora said...

We get deer, opossum, rabbits, and ground hogs, but no, I haven't seen a cow wandering down the streets here. She looks like she could be in a Far Side cartoon, making commentary.

Patti said...

Looks like she was coming to greet you.

Great capture, EG!

Halcyon said...

It seems like a friendly cow. I had an experience once when I was on my way to work. When I opened my frontdoor I just stared right into a Highland Cattle bulls eye, the distance where 40 cm, I was so scared that I just shut the door. But he was friendly too and followed my husband back to the pasture (or what it´s called in English).Have a nice day!

Cows are great greeters. :D We have a few roaming around our place. This one looks to be quite healthy and well fed.
