It's going to rain.

My mother always told me that if cows lay down it is going to rain. It certainly did! One cow wasn't sure though.

Re: It's going to rain.

How very English, a cow with a stiff upper lip! I really like how she's placed far to the right, you don't see her immediately

Re: It's going to rain.

I remember her ...she always was an outsider

I think I remember a T.V. prog where they studied a herd and there was a hierarchy and pecking order which meant they all had to do as they were told and only stand in certain places...and I thought they just strolled about eating or sitting down chewing.

I don't think the old wives tale is reliable but the weather forecasts are certainly based on it.

Nice shot by the way...a good rural scene.....I wish there was a really dark sky to set off the lush fields.

On yonder hill
there stands a coo
If its no there noo

Sorry Cathrine it was Scottish, don't know if any significance can be attached to that? Scottish cows more intuitive or more lazy? I didn't see the standing cow either until I did the upload!

Easy, if you mix English and Norwegian, you get Scottish... (Sometimes ) Otherwise you just get drunk.
