Well, you know that with the beautiful weather I had to do it . . .  take  Chipley for a “cowdog” drive in the mountains. We ended up in the Wolffork Valley where we saw the guy in the picture above. I got out of the car and walked up to the fence and started taking his photo. Chipley was near me going nuts. The cow never moved a muscle . . . . He moved an ear, but basically, he just stood perfect still and let me take his photo.


And Chip was so excited about being this close to a cow and seeing it hold perfectly still that he talked about it all the way home. (You know I’m kidding, right?) I came away from the valley thinking about how beautiful these animals can be. They also are vulnerable in a sense because they are out in the open fields where anyone can stop, and like me, take their photos. Isn’t he beautiful? You could ask Chip but I can tell you that he thinks they are terrific!
