Monday, Monday.

They seem to be the hardest day of the week for me.

Yesterday, as I finished shutting down my office computer in preparation for going home, I turned to look outside, and there stood a cow, staring at me in the face, through the window. I shrieked and said "There's a cow standing in the front yard!"

As trainers headed out the front door, she got spooked. She ran up towards the back of the ranch (toward the canyon), past several dog kennels. Dogs were not happy at all by what they were seeing and vocally let her know. A cow wandering through their territory wasn't going to be tolerated by some.

Here's a shot I got just after one of the dogs scared her....

Scared cow.
At one point I had her trapped between two rows of cat kennels. That didn't last very long. She began to charge directly towards me. I jumped onto the cat cages to get out of the way, as nearby trainers stood laughing at the hilariousness.(Thanks, guys!)  :-)

She eventually climbed over a barbed wire fence and wandered off. It was the perfect ending to an otherwise uneventful Monday.
