Where seldom is herd a discouraging word

We’ve run into (not literally, fortunately) some unusual roadblocks on our jaunts through the countryside of the Franche-Comté.  We were not cowed, however.  😉  Just part of the experience.

    Seen but not herd?

  2. wow, they must have a very nice mayor… it’s no longer allowed here to walk with cows on the road, the farmer who has his meadows around our village has to transport them with a trailer (he is not amused about being the cow taxi, he can only transport two cows and to move the whole herd needs a lot of time)

    They definitely live life in a slower pace!! Lovely!

  4. Looks like they moooved along quite quickly!

  5. Dan Antion says:

    It’s probably wise to give them the right of way. Did they at least signal?

  6. In France I would have thought that you herd it through the grapevine!
    Happy, happy.

  7. Janet, you are the Queen of Puns.

  8. Hahaha,,,,,,,what a mootiful roadblock. 🙂

  9. Smiles. I live in Reno, NV and was blocked once by the police trying to corral an escaped bull on a busy city street. Gotta love the wild West.

  10. I hope the traffic jam didn’t put you in a bad moooed.
