    these are the only cows i know that will come running when you stop on the road...within 30 seconds about 50 /all were on the fence...once they got there they sounded like a bunch of old men coughing and hacking a lung out

    I used to live on an old horse ranch in southeast San Diego County that was a little over a mile off the paved highway. The dirt road to the house went through the neighboring cattle rancher's field and then up a steep hill side where the road was just slightly wider than a pick-up truck.

    Now in my time there, I got used to hearing the cattle chewing their food at night. As soon as you turned the flash light on and towards the noise you would see 30-40 pairs of eyes much like your photo ... all staring at YOU.

    However, one night, I'm driving up the road, which is pitch black other than my headlights, when all of a sudden I see 30-40 coming at me down the road. I was in my little compact car at the time. I'm positive the cows saw as they were barreling down the road at me. And, of course I had just passed the sharpest turn on the road where I couldn't really back-up too fast or I'd be over the side. After running at me near full speed, the herd suddenly stopped feet away from my car. I guess the look on my face must have scared them. They turned around and started running back up the hill. So there I was in my little VW Fox herding the cows up the hill . Fortunately at the top near the cattle gate to the property I lived at the roadway opened up and the cows turned and went around me

    Here's a couple of shots of the old place. No cows present though.

    This is from the back field towards the house. Where the dirt road crests towards the upper left is where the cattle gate was and where the cows made their escape.

    This is our dog that would try to herd the cows. Although we were convinced she just thought they were really big dogs.

    Yeh, well that's not unusual Sonynut. Cows seem to have a natural curiosity anyway but those young ones probably hoped you had a bucket of nuts. If you're a sadist, give a bucket of nuts to a novice with instructions to shake it, send them into a field of young cows and see who can run the faster (don't forget your camera). Trouble is, young cows haven't a clue about traction and stopping distance, especially in the wet. And yes, I learned the hard way.
