Thank you all for your responses to my post the other day. The supervisor supposedly said, "That doesn't sound like him but it's possible, he shouldn't have said that, I'll talk to him." So that's not very promising but whatever.

In reward, I give you cow videos. Embedding seems to be broken, so sadly I can only give you links. I tweeted KinjaHelp, so if they get it fixed I'll come back and edit.

First up, three videos of cows running around like maniacs because I let them into a new pen. Turn on your sound to hear funny cow noises, too.

Next up, Siren chowing down on grass as fast as she can. Fun fact: cows only have teeth on the bottom (except to molars) so they eat by curling their tongue around the grass and pulling. Then they swallow it whole. Later, they will burp it back up as "cud" and chew it. This evolved so if they found good food they could eat it really fast, then when they were safe away from predators they could take the time to chew it. So whenever you see a cow chewing her cud you know she feels safe and comfortable.

Here's us taking KitKat out to pasture by tying her to the fourwheeler and leading her like a dog! It's a bit unconventional, but my cows are very people-friendly so this works better for me than trying to chase her. She spent the whole year milking, and now she is pregnant and due in about 6 weeks. This is her vacation, where we don't milk her at all, until she has her next baby. She is just over four years old.

And the best for last - COW FIGHT! Every time you introduce new animal(s) to a group, they need to figure out the pecking order. Sapphire is two years old and also going to have a baby in about 6 weeks, and she is the boss of this pen, so she immediately challenges KitKat. You can see why everyone is a lot safer with horns removed. Sapphire weighs about 1100 pounds and KitKat probably 1400 or so.
