Cow Stories

Cows in the mist

Seeing as we are the Wandering Cows and I was in lots of pastoral places in rural Turkey, it would seem appropriate to include a post on cow pictures. Here are my favourites.  Most feature cows in the mist as we were up high and the clouds were low.

The people of the Kaçkar have two – sometimes three – homes, and they move up and down the mountain seasonally for their livestock to graze. In the summer, they are in the high pastures and many of these are not accessible in the winter because of snow.

I have decided that cows are more personable than other domestic creatures, like chickens for example. Cows have very engaging facial expressions and chickens do not ! Here in the Kaçkar, there are no fences and the cows roam freely, allowing me to get up close with the camera.
