Mad cows

It was a beautiful day today in Ohio.  The sun was out and in a good mood.  The sky was a solid blue. The birds were dancing to and fro, singing their favorite melodies. The signs of the approaching spring were everywhere.  But something was wrong with the cows.  They were in a foul mood.  It seems something has upset them.  They’d been receiving texts, tweets and emails from their British cousins and were all up in hooves about the horse meat scandal.  They just couldn’t understand why folks were so outraged at the thought of eating horse.  They had finally come to the conclusion that horses were just better than them.

The gang.

“It’s done been brotten.”

Fields of wonder.

  1. I don’t know if you are interested but I took that throw away piece for that barn and turned it into a real poem. If you send me an email address I’ll send it to you.>KB

  2. I, too, have encountered mad cows…loved your pictures as ever, and have nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award. If you choose to accept it (if you haven’t had at least one already), please see my post for rules associated with this award. Keep on with your great work.

  3. They are really late to the table, those cows. I lived in Switzerland/France for years and horsemeat was often on the menu. Not hidden — they eat it all the time. Me? Nope. I can’t eat anything I would name.

  4. Maybe aliens had had a nightly visit? Or maybe they were a bit sick with ‘mad cow disease’. You never know, Seth, you never know…. *looks dreamily out of imaginary window*

  5. Seth your work is always so good. I especially like the colorful one of the little bird…. but all are beautiful in their own way… 😀

  6. Wow! The first pictures with a bird and thorns, made me remember my favorite author, Oscar Wilde’s Short Story – The Nightingale and the Rose. You should read it.

  7. Adore the photo of the bird eating, actually, I love all of them. They’re so clean and fresh, just like being in a rural area 🙂

  8. ‘what you looking at ‘ So you’ve found cows can be a little insolent in their attitude too 🙂
    Great post Seth .

  9. Thanks for the like Seth! I’m new to this whole blogging business so it’s a major thrill to receive any kind of notification!
