One night I was trudging down the path beside the corn/beanfield beside the creek with my latern held midwaiste so as not to blind myself but not catch the grass on fire when all of the sudden a cow comes out of the dark almost on top of me. Boy did i jump! ive had a few close calls with the cattle down at the old highway that crosses the creek ...one in particular where one day the big angus bull was sneaking up in water behind me when i looked around was about 15 ft from me chest deep in water ....so im a little leary of the group as a whole. Another time a calf was out of fence on opposite side of creek bawling and all the mama cows came down and ran me off. Another time I was sitting down and felt like i was being watched I just happed to look down .......much to my surprise there was a snake that had stretched out from under a rock i was sitting on to see what was going on . I think he was as surprised as i was!
