It's a pleasure! I can imagine it feels rewarding in a way!

Is it just me, or do cows just seem permanently happy? Not overjoyed, just pleased with how things are going?

nalina24's avatar

absolutely – they seem usually so content :) and when you walk past them, they are curious in a friendly way, but too lazy to actually walk over ;)

I've heard that compared to humans, the sort of stress hormone levels you only find in particularly promising fighter pilot applicants are normal in cows.

like really stressed all the time or not easily stressed at all?

Tinselfire's avatar

Basically never. There is pretty much nothing that gets to them.

It makes sense - if you have domestic animals that could easily smush a human, breeding for docility and stress tolerance makes sense. But apparently jak and buffaloes aren't that different in that regard. Even the ones that wrestle lions all day.

I guess when you got the size advantage, are armed to the teeth, and built to pretty much just lay around and chill all day, nothing fazes you.

Impressive… Then I wish I had their tolerance (especially regarding all my school-work right now ;) )

And yes, it makes kind of sense… But then there is also the fact that every year we have accidents because some people underestimate cows: especially mothers feel easily threatened and don't take kindly to tourists trying to pet their young…

Got to admit, I don't have a lot of day to day experience with cows. Live in a semi-rural area, so when you got farms within walking distance you kind of take them for granted.

An I've been spoiled by an acquaintance who used to bring their ox to renaissance faires. Even as far as oxen go he was just bafflingly harmless - know at least once they ran him through the car wash, and he kind of just nodded off in there o.O

hahaha, that would make a perfect picture: an ox in a carwash :D I'd like to see that :)

And yes, they are nice animals and usually friendly and relaxed – there is just this other side as well… but I think it's also kind of understandable that they don't put up with people treating them however they want.
