Was the cow ever spooked by anything or anyone, such as a dog?

No, not that I can remember. We basically just opened the gate and they walked themselves home. We just followed them the hundred meters back to the barn and received candy from Auntie. chuckle.gif

I suppose dealing with one cow (not with a herd mentality) would be quite safe. I wonder Octo, was that cow purchased as a calf and grew up with humans rather than with it's own kind?

you and jr grew up on farms? blink.gif

I grew up in a rural community in Indiana. I worked in the summer on farms from the time I was 14.

i started working when i was dunno 18? 19? lol.gif
times have definitely changed. damned.gif

In Indiana you could get a work permit at 14, for the summer. As far as I know, you still can. It's common in the Midwest.
They need kids to detassle corn and put up hay.

My Aunt had 3 cows, I don't know if she had them since they were little or what. But they were used to human interaction as they were taken out to graze in the morning until afternoon. And they were in the field right by our cabin so they were used to us. Sometimes they'd get out of their patch and come around the house to stick their head in through the open kitchen window. chuckle.gif

in germany you are also allowed to start working at age 14. how many hours depends on if you're still visiting school or not.

No, just became extremely agitated, but one Summer, as a child, I was swimming in an Ontario lake and a fish started biting on my ankle.

Between 2003 and 2008, 108 people in the United States died from injuries caused by cattle, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s 27 times the whopping 4 people killed in shark attacks in the United States during the same time period, according to the International Shark Attack File. - See more at: http://www.physiciansweekly.com/statisti...uCOcn.dpuf
