Eating grass, not the corn
Can you see the electrified fencing between the cows and the road?
At first I was very impressed with these well-behaved cattle. The corn was right there but they seemed content eating the grass.
Can you see the reason for the good behavior?
But then I noticed what was between the cattle and the corn. Yep, I would have behaved too.
I am linking to Friday Fences here.
Looks like the word has gotten around: Don't touch the corn! :-)
We've seen a few adventurous cows reach under the fence with no consequence -- they are trained young to respect the fence! :)
I would have behaved too!!
Nice shot. Cows and Corn together but separate.
I'd behave especially if those wire are juiced :)
Guess the cows have figured out how the fence works.
i bet without that fence they would be eating themselves sick on all that corn... i love cows
Oh I LOVE these shots I have always admired well behaved cattle by the way. Great shots. B
Absolutely delightful captures.
I wouldn't want to touch a hot fence either. We all have I guess--cows included. MB
yup, that's about the only way to stop 'em from getting through. :)
That has got to be torture!
I once had a horse that knew how to unhook the fence from the battery that operated it. He also knew how to open doors to the feed barn and gates.
I like those brown cows!
seems a little excessive to electrify the fences....
It is not excessive as the cows only ever touch the wire once and then always stay clear of it,in fact probably if it was turned off, they still would stay on their side!
That last cow is looking back as though she knows she's getting a little too close! Sweet pics.
Great photos today!
They learned fast! Love the glimpse of lush corn fields.
Those farmers. Smart folks.
I've been shocked by an electric fence and I never go near them anymore, either. :) Sweet photos!
Great cattle control!
Yes, I can tell you from experience that electric fencing will zap you a good one!
Let's just keep the illusion alive. They are very well-behaved cattle. :)
Darn electric fences ruin all their fun!
I love cows. We had a cow just like the one in your second photo. Her name was Daisy and she had tons of personality. great shots today.
Those cows would certainly eat that corn if they could get to it.
That must be awfully tempting!
They are beautiful cows.
Yep, I see the reason and I would have behaved, too! I feel like I am extra sensitive to electricity...I have had static shock make me cry when I worked in this one factory.
One time when I was a kid, I was closing an electric fence gate...it is this little spring thing covered by a plastic handle. My hand slid off and I rammed it real good against the electric fence...talk about pain!
