Happy Cattle + Have a Great Weekend

Cattle grazing on Dartmoor National Park, Devon, UK.
Dartmoor is situated in Devon, UK, and is one of the few real wilderness areas left in England.
Walking on Dartmoor is wonderful. Nothing can beat the view of a herd of happy cattle.
I was quite happy with my cow encounter...

I wasn't born and raised on a ranch, but I've always loved these beautiful animals.
Happy cattle enjoy natural surroundings!
(Remember, each animal can give it's best while enjoying a good life in natural surroundings.)

Do you love cows? 

Hope you all have a wonderful, 'moo-moo' weekend! xx

I don't like very much the idea of living in a ranch near the nature.I hate all the insects.I would have fresh and natural goods but I would have to spend much time care about the house.
I would like to see kangaroos in Australia.

Oh, Betty! Blogger has been chewing up and spitting out all of the comments I've been leaving lately. I know that I commented on this because it was so lovely to have a touch of nature on a city-dwelling Friday afternoon!

I grew up on a farm, and I love cows, except perhaps when I had to get up before dawn on a cold winter morning to help with the milking. But I like your pictures of the cows in this beautiful setting.
I hope you're having a great weekend.

You have to love the serenity and curiosity of cows! Your photos are lovely...I photographed some cows this weekend, and they were shoving each other aside to see what that curious character was in front of them. They were really funny! Have a great day!

Wow these photos are beautiful. I love being outdoors (with the right weather of course - not on a Florida hot hot summer, lol) and especially in something so scenic as this. You don't see that here unless you go out of your way to drive to certain areas, cute to run into the cattle :)
