My nephew Onion is going through a phase where he loves cows. They are possibly the most exciting animal in the world as far as he's concerned. It is a good thing they live in Davis because the university has an amazing agriculture and veterinary schools. They have their own herd of dairy cows and when I was out this morning I stopped to visit with them.
As an undergrad we used to visit the cows all the time, their barn is close to the dorms and the young cows are like big dogs, they want to smell you, lick you and, above all, they want you to play with them. Well, the university doesn't really want you molesting the livestock but I did manage to time it so that I arrived just as they were being fed. This big gal tried to give me a kiss while I was taking her picture despite the fact there was mistletoe nowhere near us!
