The dog ate my homework etc...

Excuses for being late...
I was innocently on my way to work when I spotted them...
...there they were, passively enjoying a misty mid-morning rest in the Woodside Farm field.
I only stopped for a minute or two to snap some photos...
Such domestic beauty was impossible to pass up and I found myself dodging
ditches, brambles and noxious broom just to capture but a few of the Jersey moods...
Before you knew it I was a tad late for work...just 5 minutes but Oh! so worth it!

So true, so true. I love this.
I always wanted a Jersey cow. I still want one. How could you not want to see that face everyday of your life?
Being late for work... worth it.

i am a lover of cows. they seem most always calm. they are soft and furry. they have long eyelashes and big brown eyes.

very good captures.

Talk about stopping to "smell the roses"; you captured some wonderful images of those Jersey cows enjoying their peaceful surroundings. Very nice. Worth the five minutes!

I had a very funny visual of you trying to get these shots! Totally worth it. What beauties. Cows in the Mists! :)

So glad you stopped. These cows are so beautiful with their big brown eyes.
