The Island of Cows!

Cows are seriously everywhere here.  One has to pretty much just look out their door or window to see one.  (In our case, it's out of our upstairs bathroom window... ha ha ha).  The country side here is broken up into pastures, lined with stone walls, and the cows are moved from pasture to pasture.  When all the grass from one pasture is eaten, they are moved to another.  Most times, they use the main roads to move the cows.  During many of our outings, we have to stop and let "cow parades", as we call them, pass us by before we can drive again.  These are pictures we took during my parents' visit of different cows, and cow parades.

Above is a brown cow parade- I think that was the first brown cow parade we've seen.  Usually they're the black and white Holstein cows (shown below).

Holstein cow parade, above.  Below, cows in a pasture.  We were up on a hill and there was some fog moving in.
