...heard a cow snore?

Last night when Mom and Lilly
went out for the final check
around the yard,
they heard a strange noise
that spooked them
so they "high-tailed" it
back into the house
to get Dad.

Upon further inspection
and an insult to a dreaming bovine,
Dad discovered that the noise
that scared Mom and Lilly
was none other
than a snoring cow.

Mom said she had been around cattle
all of her life,
and this is the first time
she ever heard one snore!!

Sweet Dreams,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

I have been very intimate with any cows so far in my short life, so the answer is NO.
I wonder what she was dreaming about? A buttercup filled meadow perhaps?

Hope the rest of the barn wasn't too upset with that snoring cow - that must have been pretty funny.

Can't say I'm too surprised...I had an old sheep that made all sorts of funky noises in her sleep! And lets not mention a certain Scotty that snorts, snores, barks and grumbles....

Oh, that was funny, I could see them hurrying back to the house, BOL I am not cow-expert so I cant say that I have herd a cow snoring, but let me check with Uncle Ed, he lives right next door to some cows ok?

We didn't know cows could snore...Of course I only met some once and they were awake. It must have sounded VERY strange to spook you.

That made me burst out laughing! I have never been around any cows that were sleeping but I would bet it would be a very loud snore! Lots of love, Holly and mom

We've never heard a cow snore either, but Mom complained the other night that she couldn't get to sleep because Samba, Sky and Noah were snoring so loud. She woke them all up and made them stop.

I didn't know that cows snored either, and I wonder if the cow maybe has sleep apnea?

Mango said...

I bet that was a really big sound! Like rattle the windows, right? Must have made your teeth shake in your wee little brain.

Chuckle hehehe chuckle. I'm wondering if it sounded anything like Fergi.

(Don't tell her I said that!)

That is hilarious! At least your mom didn't wake up in the middle of the night to a bleating sheep toy. *does not mention any names*

Never heard a cow snore - maybe you need to get her a very large nasal strip thingey to help her not snore and let the others cows sleep - it must keep them awake too!

Gosh, I never pondered cows snoring before. I'd love to see. I mean hear.

It's so peaceful at Rocky Creek Farm that even cows are extra relaxed.

Very cool, I never knew that!
I wonder if it could snore louder than me... ?
