Lessons from a risk-taking cow?

Driving along the Millennium Highway Wednesday morning, we came upon an intrepid and enterprising bovine at the end of its tether.

But obviously determining that the grass was greener on the other side, the animal decided that although it appeared that it was at the end of its rope, it would nevertheless exert itself to get where it wanted – even if it meant that one of its hooves would not be on solid ground.

Another two animals were grazing on the hill.

Perhaps there are some life lessons that can be learned from the simple picture of a lowly cow in search of greener pastures.

It took some effort and a degree of risk to get where the animal wanted to go, even though it meant separating itself from the rest.

Although apparently at the end of its rope, the animal did not give up – a little more exertion, even though it meant being off balance for a while, took the animal where it wanted to go.

Of course, the owner of the animal might be faulted for tying the animal in such a way that it could venture close to a busy highway.

But it could also be a lesson for people who have a beef with life – that they should not be cowed into passively accepting and not attempting to bravely confront the challenges that they face on a daily basis.

Where there’s a will, there’s likely to be a way – one way….or the udder.

    Tell that to Philip J. Pierre. He needs to take the risk and prevent hillare from putting his bovine stamp on the SLP. Hillaire has already taken over the unstable communications wing of the party and is not far from taking over the actual top spot. Pierre needs to do like that ghetto millennium Highway cow and do what he has to do to survive. That may mean switching allegiances. Chastanet will give you a much better deal my boy!

    New Testament Verse of the Day:
    And they were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord God, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations.”

    A lesson to the wise. Stay out of the cow business. Cattle are colour blind unlike you who pretend you can see. The grass is greener on the other side till you get there and see for yourself!
