Yard Cows

Fridays I like to post something that will put a smile on your face... if it's been a hard week, we need it! Yesterday when I was "moving furniture on the blog" I mean changing color schemes, I saw this on Link Within at the bottom of a post. Posted last year, I'd forgotten this and it's a GOOD ONE!!! So read on and enjoy... Have a great weekend and keep your door closed if you have "yard cows!

Sometimes a story escapes me. It could be a busy morning and I just didn't have the time to read the paper. If it doesn't get read with my coffee, out it goes to the recycling bin. I get my news on tv and the Internet so what could I possibly miss? Yesterday when I was Googling for Arkansas roads...don't ask... this story comes out of Texas, The Denton Record Chronicle to be exact. That's where my daughter Amy lives, she must have missed it too... I'm sure she would have mentioned it! After all it's an Arkansas news story. It seems the cows in the picture above decided to raid a home in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. When Latisha Francis came home she found the three in her farmhouse. From the looks of the one sprawled out in the picture, they had a big ol' party! I don't think I've ever seen a cow lay that way, maybe a frog but definitely not a cow!

Francis knew right away something was amiss when she drove up and one of the cows was looking out the front door. That one walked out on it's own, but the other two had a hard time navigating the laminate wood floors and had layed down and given up! Can you imagine coming home from a hard day at work. Maybe the boss had been grouchy or that mean lady in accounting had circled your mistakes with her red pencil... then when you finally get home, you have to get cows out before you can even set down and watch the news. Hey, you ARE the news! Check the link out and read this, there's no way I could ever make something this good up...

    1. I thought the same thing Karen but the article didn't say anything about the cows being hurt so I guess they were ok.

    1. My first thought was WHO leaves a door open in the first place so cows could come in!

  5. Well, this story sure beats out a lot of others! How fascinating. Maybe they thought they were running into a barn. The one layed out on the ground doesn't look right to me. Cows don't do that. Boy, what a mess that must have been to clean up. Ha! Can you imagine driving up to your house and being greeted by a cow at your door?!

    1. Right! None of this makes much sense, you'd think the cows would be too afraid to go in a house!

    1. This post may have been too disturbing, so many of us hope the cow survived. The link to the article didn't say the cows were hurt though. If you've ever been around cows you just know that's not "normal."

  12. That is an OHHH MY GOSH - for sure!!
    I do hope that cow is/was alive. Must have been a really hot day for her to be sprawled out with her utters in the mud!! And the one in the house---- HOLY COW!!
