Moo goes the cow

Why is it that juvenile cows bunch together and follow me as I pass their paddock? Weird.

Today was another 26km from Huntly to Ngaruawahia and along River Road towards Hamilton, past all the multi-million dollar homes which overlook the Waikato River.

Far to say most of them are completely OTT (over the top) and ostentatious, but hey- each to their own I guess.

I have physio again tomorrow morning. The right shin is indeed playing up – ultrasound yesterday and probably more required. Fingers crossed I can complete the 21km through Hamilton to the Jamboree sight at Mystery Creek Event Centre tomorrow!

    did you have your shirt off???

    • No Mrs Boyes, I didn’t. You seem fixated with me taking my shirt off. I’m very much a sun-smart hiker, so long sleeves and collars are the order of each day. πŸ˜‰

      • Cheers guys! Being able to stay with Melissa was a real godsend. It’s the first time I’ve spent any length of time in Auckland – I’m starting to get my bearings of the city’s layout!

  2. I was on a farm on Christmas day too Stuart and took my camera into a field of 100 young cows, sat down, and waited. I was counting on their curious nature and sure enough they surrounded me and came in for a sniff. I got up slowly and walked around the perimeter of their paddock, with them following me like the Pied Piper. I guess their instinct as herding animals is to follow something that looks like a leader! Great fun until somebody steps in a fresh cowpat! πŸ™‚
