I forgot one thing about my experience with the round bale feeder (perhaps I blocked it out :)). As the calf started running off with the round bale feeder hooked on his hips, he was mooing in a total panicked frenzy. This, of course excited the other 60 cows that were in the field with him and they all started charging toward us, running around us and mooing in sympathy. It added a bit to the increased feeling of danger that set in upon me.
In retrospect, it reminded me of a video I once saw. If you’ve ever wondered how threatening a heard of cattle can be, watch this video from Kruger National Park in South Africa:
Makes you think 🙂
