The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence . . . by 

This crafty cow threaded its long horns through the barbed wire fence, got down on its knees, and munched the grass just outside its normal reach. Aren’t we a lot like that? Going through all sorts of trouble to grab “something better” when everything we need is usually right under our feet!
P.S. In case you’re wondering, I did watch as the process reversed itself and the bovine wonder gingerly manuevered its head and massive horns back through the wires, straightened its knees, and returned to home base without a hitch.

    Nice capture Bonnie. That’s what people always say don’t they ? when I hear that comment I always say, you might THINK the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, but take the fence down and you will find you are still in the same field. if some people would only realize that perhaps they would stop running away from things.
