Talk about "scratching an itch" Paul. It reminded me of a TedTalk I saw recently. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D6q2wKhqdmmw&ved=0ahUKEwiG-I2Z2YvKAhUT9mMKHWV0BcoQtwIIHjAB&usg=AFQjCNFnPjurDg3u631m8bGXkeP9oVVYZQ&sig2=HvSn-e3uRJhkwm54fZisHA Sorry for the long url, doing post from phone.
That is from Mary Roach's TedTalk "10 Things You Don't Know About Orgasms"

Reminds me of the rotary brush attachment we purchased to fit on our hair clippers for the goats. It solved the problem of there being afraid of the clippers once they got used to being brushed with the same motor sound. sure worked great for keeping them looking great at the fairs.

Our cow, Layna Mae, weaving a garland from the greens and grasses growing on the compost pile. In my book, fun is one of a cow's many functions.

Great idea Are these rescue cows or for dairy/slaughter?

Here is our happiest cow, Nano. Most of our cows are a little grumpy and scared. They are all strays and are frequently beaten while on the road/in fields. Nano here was lucky enough to be born with us so he is quite friendly

His mom is a super-grump! But she is a great mom :D and Nano gets to drink all the milk

Here are a few photos of the Arouquesa cattle that were grazing freely around the picnic area that the coach stopped at on the village outing last year.

It may be time for me to start that second cow painting.  The first has been a big hit.  It has been shown at our local art guild show, is now at the local state fair, and husband is getting impatient for it to return to our dining room wall.
