Grooming

One of the most common activities performed at Care for Cows is grooming. Of all the activities that are dear to cows, eating is the most popular but grooming runs a close second. We often observe that if cows are groomed at feeding time, they often stop eating in order to relish firm brushing or scratching. So daily, the cowherdmen and guests groom as many members of the herd as possible. Most cows like human attention and affection.

 

They especially like being cuddled by children. Guests who frequent Care for Cows are provided with brushes and when they enter the barnyard, the residents often crowd around them competing for attention.






Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is - whether its victim is human or animal - we cannot expect things to be much better in this world... We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity.
