The Smiling Cow

29 Jan

Why is this cow smiling?

Perhaps it’s enjoying being the centre of attention at the local Australia Day show.

Perhaps it’s relishing the company–of humans, of farm-yard animals, and of pets.

Perhaps it’s savouring its new environment–the distant trees, the unusual grasses.

Does it know that it will soon play a major role– the animal star of ‘Milking the Cow’?

Whatever the reason –to our eyes at least– this cow is displaying a contagious grin. 🙂

Our local Council organized a wonderful, family day out in celebration of Australia Day on January 26.

Carnival-style stalls and demonstrations of country activities such as shearing the sheep and milking the cows provided some of the day’s highlights.

But for me, nothing could equal the delight of watching the farmyard animals.

One remarkably friendly and engaging baby goat kept coming up to me, seeking attention. I confess I would be tempted to have one as a pet if circumstances permitted.

As it is, Chicki need have no fear of competition.
