how now wet cow?

suddenly the rain came sheeting down
and the dappled cows bowed with pleasure.

Ooo I think the smells in that paddock would be just perfect - for me anyways.

magical! The rain and the mist with this soft yellow tone convey a magic atmosphere.

Very bucolic. MB

Don't you just hate watered down milk?

I have seen a lot of wet cattle during the past week here in Costa Rica, but I never thought of stopping the care nd going out in the rain to take a photo of them.

Good for you for showing more creativity and self sacrifice.

Not all happy cows are in California.
That was quite a rain/thunder storm yesterday. The gardens are smiling.

Great mood in it...
I think the cows are happy about the rain...
Is it hot too?

Sharon said...

I wonder if the rain makes the grass taste sweeter?

Oh, how lucky you are to have the rain. This is a wonderful scene.

"Mmmm... Some moisture!" - says the cow! :-) The smell must be wonderful and so is your shot.

Moo, moo!

I saw some cows
Out in the grass
One was a boy
One was a lass
I'm sure I heard
Both of them laugh.

Must have been the rain.

Lovely shot, Brattcat!

It doesn't look like the rain bothers the old girls at all.

Beautiful photo!

OH I'd do bow with pleasure if we'd get a good soaking rain. It's rained all around us but we've not gotten more than a sprinkling in ages.

A lovely scene.
