Chipley loves lambs. He whines and begs them to come closer. He also loves brown cows, but I can’t say the same about black cows.
I think it is an “eye thing”! He can’t see the eyes of a black cow clearly so he does his “ruuuufff” thing that means I’m about to go into a full blown uncontrolable bark! Yikes!
Even when the cow is a great distance away (like this one), he knows it and can sniff it out! Literally! So the nursery rhyme Hey! Diddle, Diddle was not written about a black cow. “Hey! Diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the (brown) cow jumped over the moon; the little dog laughed to see such sport, and the dish ran away with the spoon!” What more can be said?!
