Cow Whispering 101

**Please do not attempt this at home.  I am a professional or an idiot, take your pick.**

First, call up hungry cows.

Second, pour feed out for said cows.  As cows eat, get on hands and knees and proceed to crawl towards them.

Once among the group, try enticing cow with cube.

Don't give up, try another.

But remember, balance is key.  It takes great skill to crawl across pasture on all fours.

A skill I have yet to master!  I think I hit a rock.

Also a word to the wise....as the husband said as I was out among the cows, "honey, don't get smoked."

I did not get ran over, mission accomplished.

As a gal that's been "smoked" good job on not having it happen! Of course I've only been run over by babies, and had their pointy little hooves down the front of my shirt, but that was enough! What the heck were you doing anyway? lol

Sydney said...

LOL thats hilarious! What was the reasoning behind crawling on the knees?

What in the world were you doing? I'm convinced you've got the cow whispering down pat just because nobody thought to check you out! What was your escape plan?

ya know, I'll work cattle all day long as long as I am horseback. I don't like to be on my own 2 feet in the same pen as a cow. gives me the heebeejeebee's.

So there fore, you are CRAZY!! haha

Paige said...

well if you had been doing that here today, we never would see you again. Under the dusting of snow-we have feet of mud. It is appalling

Jocelyn said...

uhh what were u doing?

Dear Lord woman don't you kow that moo cows are the devil???

Mikey said...

LMAO!!! What in the WORLD are you thinking? You crazy!!!
Lol, we're taming "ours" (the ranchers) by feeding them handfuls over the fence. Got to watch your fingers :) I also try to cop a feel on their face, so far I haven't done so well w/that. But man, if I went out like you just did, for SURE I'd get "smoked" lol. These mamas here hit the fence if you get too close to their babies. You is a brave, brave girl... and great for a laugh!!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Moooooove on over before they run you over.

You are brave!

Ok,I gotta ask?what the hell were you playin at girl? Glad you didn't get "smoked"
I think you should whisper from two feet instead of all fours

Faithful said...

I'm sure they wouldn't care if you were yelling, they would come. Becareful you crazy sister. You say I am eloquent? You are the gifted speaker...whisperer.lmao

Shirley said...

Certifiable. Get out the straight jacket! I assume there was a point to this madness?

~The South Dakota Cowgirl~ said...

Girl- you're so funny! We have some really gentle cows in our herd that will cake right out of your hands. I don't know if I'd try that in your herd. You're certainly braver than me! You look like you're dressed for the arctic. How cold was it?

lisa said...

Those rocks sure play hell on the knees or is that tires! No stampede, so you did it!

lifein3dee said...

I'm far too old to try that. LOL Funny to see you doing it though.

Cowgirl Goods said...

OMG did you almost pee your pants laughing? FUNNY, VERY FUNNY

AKPonyGirl said...

Somewhere I have a picture of me sleeping between two show bulls at the West Palm Beach Fair. They were as gentle as long as they were haltered. However, I would NOT try to walk in their pasture much less crawl on my knees.

Crazy M is right!

Tatersmama said...

YOU.ARE.NUTS!
Either that, or your just practicing your New Years Eve crawl. One or t-other!

You wouldn't catch me messin' with cows on TWO feet, let alone on all fours - not for love or money! (makes it hard to run when you're in that position)

Janice said...

I just got caught up on your posts, I think they just kept getting funnier. Thanks for the chuckle I was need n one.
