A Spring Stampede

As we were turning the car around to find a place to park we noticed a little stampede had started.  I had to hurry and start snapping!  I did the best I could considering there are a lot of trees and these horses, cows and calf were cruising!  I couldn't believe that little calf was running with the horses!  Mama cow was trying to catch up with her baby!  We had a blast watching these beautiful animals.



Do you see the calf?  Mama cow is trying to catch up! LOL






They started slowing down.

This is Mama cow and after the stampede she went a trotting over to these horses and she had a lot to say.
We could hear her from across the road!  She wasn't too happy. 
I think she was giving them grief for almost running over her baby.

They were just doing what kids do, playing on a beautiful day and it didn't matter to them if they were cows and horses. Of course, being a mama, she had to get her two cents in :)

How funny! I bet that mama cow was giving them grief, and the calf had a ball!

You got some great action shots Marie. I'm betting the calf was really enjoying playing with the big kids. Mama probably gave those young whippersnappers a real lecture.

I hope you had a great weekend.
