Cattle Crossing

The things I see...... You just would not believe.

I found a special road, near the river, where the cows have their own flashing light, crossing guard and a beach area to "tan."

Fancy light:

All laying down chewing their cud.

Lots of soft sand to lay in after walking in the river.

Mostly Jersey cows with a few "token" Holsteins, whom are also "tanning" themselves.

Always nice to see a nice, calm, comfortable herd taking advantage of the cooler Vermont weather.

This must be the queen cow as she is on the top of the sand mound.
At 4 pm the lights start to blink and flash, the cows get up and line up to go across the highway and their private crossing guard comes to direct traffic so the girls can get to their farm to be milked.


  1. Wow, that's an amazing cattle light. I love it. "Cows are people too", in my world. You can tell who the queen cow really is by watching them under pressure. The boss cow is in the centre, the safest spot in a herd.

  2. Not sure how I found your blog tonight, but thanks for the photos of farms in your part of the country :)
