French cows!

We live next to a farm. The farmer breeds these beautiful cows (vache, in French) local to the area, called Parthenaise. They are very gentle creatures, only making a noise when they are let out of their barns in the mornings and, in the evenings, if the farmer is late putting them back in again. During the warmest months of the year, they are outside all the time. They are bred purely for meat but they have the most wonderful life before they make their final journey. There is no pollution here, it's quiet and peaceful, and nothing threatens them - apart from me and my camera! They do seem to like posing, though.
