We stopped to take some photos of St. Peter’s Island off the south central shore of Prince Edward Island.
When I exited the car, I noticed the young cattle in the adjacent field.
A bucket list moment presented itself.
Maybe you’ve see the videos. Someone approaches a field of cattle and begins to sing. I have always wanted to try it.
I didn’t have the courage to video the scene since my singing is nothing special. However, I summoned up my best soprano vocals and began to sing an impromptu song for the bovine audience. On other humans were around other than my husband. He doubted my sanity so he stayed in the car.
The funny thing was, the cattle did react and I took photos.
When I started singing, several of them looked up and a few moved down opposite where I was located. Over the next few minutes, as I continued to sing,
cattle which had been minding their own business, looked towards me,
then stood up and moved to join the others opposite me.
Some farmers play music for their milk cows to soothe them. These cattle looked relaxed enough but it must be boring for them in the field day after day. Does the serenade break the boredom for the bovines?
You know I have to do it again! We don’t want bored cows on the island.
