    The perils of travelling on country roads in Tassie!

    .....especially when the cows need moooooving.
    Michael and I were on our way to Sheffield and got slightly held up by this herd of cows....so, how else to pass the time but take some pics. I probably should have gotten out of the car to take them, but Michael threatened to leave me behind if I did.
    First one shows them in absolutely no rush,
    the second proves I wasn't the only one who spotted a photo opportunity
    .... and the third....well, the cows obviously got a bit bored as well LOL

    The things you see on country roads. Number 3 is very funny and well spotted.

    Hehe, not hard to tell the non-farmers amongst us. That girl was just bullin' in photo 3 and would've have been serviced by the next morning (bull or AI).

    Nice photos though, of a healthy Holstein-Friesian herd.

    ROFL Lani, love the latest one. I do miss the dairy cows, just not the early morning starts (or my ex for that matter)... and I loved showing them as well.

    To be honest, Lani, I can't remember exactly where. I visited a friend in Longford and then drove back down through the lakes area - so about somewhere in the middle is the best I can do!

    Surprisingly, it didn't take that long! After stopping to take the shot, I just continued driving. Sheep being sheep, as soon as I started to move towards them, they very considerately moved out of the way! Drove very slowly for about a kilometre and then I was through.
