August was extremely hot and we hid behind shutters sipping cool spritzers. The cows too felt the heat and shuffled and wiggled themselves perfectly into the oak trees shadow and waited patiently till the sun cooled a little around four in the afternoon. How many cows can you get under a tree? In some cases they even stand over each other or tuck calves between legs. Everyone must make room.
Spotting me with camera, a couple of the more curious cows ventured over and stopped for a cool drink. If you have a tail its a good idea to sling it over your back when not needed for fly swatting. And we don’t care if we dribble to camera either!
