Very cool. I'm glad you got the guts up to go chat with them, it made for a very good vlog.I don't know if the family who owned the farm is watching, but I hope they are - it's was a very nice view into their lives.- Dave

Great video! I was amazed at how friendly she was. That one cow that came running up to feed almost had me worried. Anyway, good job!

Ever seen that DVD with Yo-Yo, Mark and Edgar? 'Appalachian Trails'. It's awesome, you should check, it out.

Great video! Goes to show you the cool experiences you can have when you step out of your comfort zone. I'm glad the bull was nice to you!On another note, I heard a rumor that you were going to be travelling around in Europe during the month of August and will be away from vlogging. If this is true, it'll seem like one of my favorite shows is ending for the season. Hope you have a great time and vlog it!

excellent!..the hospitality of strangers is a wonderful thing.

What I liked most was seeing your tentativeness with these animals, and how you warmed up to them. I really felt a little of your "experience," on the farm Josh. Thanks.

Did she say she enjoys their meat? Great stuff josh.

No way....the male looked huge.Nice video.

I think you should have jumped on the bull for a ride like she suggested. That would have been fun to watch.. maybe not for you though. :) That thing had the largest horns I have ever seen!

Josh, I really enjoyed that!I agree that more people should take that leap and try to follow-up on interesting stories that they see. Be persistent, as you were going back no knowing what you'd find when you got there.A thanks to the family allowed us all to see this little bit of their existence.

Mooo. That bull was nas-tee. Good for you for filming it up close.
By Josh K, at 2:47 PM, July 28, 2005
those bull's were cute but huge...kinda look scary too.
By karen, at 3:22 PM, July 28, 2005
Nice work. I really liked the editing touches you added.
By Matt, at 5:46 PM, July 28, 2005
Who says you never meet interesting people. This is a good example of how Vlogs can be longer than 2 or 3 minutes and be totally watchable. Have you noticed how everyone is getting so much better at Vlogging?

Nice video, Josh. Any time you can get out of the city you can find some really wonderful people with good stories to tell. Actually, you can find that in cities too, but the scenery is better in rural areas.Good job!Carl

josh leo, you are like a modern day mr. rogers. :)when that first cow came running over the field, i thought, "WHOA she has BUFFALO!?" i'm such a suburban dork.

I enjoyed this one a lot, Josh. Yes, the things we can experience just by getting out of our own comfort zone...Hey, could you vlog your plans for Europe? Show us on the map where you are heading, who you are meeting up with, and what you want to do over there? What expectations do you have, this being your first time outside the US ever? It would be interesting to compare your vision of Europe Before you go, and then compare that with after.

Great to see these cattle in the U.S. My father spent a lot of time in the Scottish highlands while learning to be a shepherd / border collie guy and we always marvelled at his images of the Highland Cattle. Majestic in a prehistoric kind of way, no?

Your videos/vlogs as always are fabulous. I’m curious as to your position on “corporate sponsorship” for Vlogging. I’ve heard that many of the vloggers involved in the yahoo group are actually “paid to vlog”. Your comments?Cheryl Shuman

Josh--these are very, very cute cows. I can't believe how docile they were! When we go out to Bre's folks' sheep farm I wouldn't dare get near the rams. Good job coming up with something new and interesting...still waiting on the hot dog stand, though.PS--nice haircut!

I was surprised looking at the cow running for food like my cat when I feed him
By Cuoredifango, at 8:24 AM, August 01, 2005
nice one josh. my favorite "bittersweet" part was watching the bull standing by itself as you hear the cars going by in the background. i never would have thought such intimidating looking animals could be so docile and sweet. isn't it often like that? :)
By Zadi, at 3:15 AM, August 02, 2005
Great job, as always!I'm so glad she didn't try to take advantage of a city slicker like you and talk you in to milking that bull!Whew baby! That would have been one hell'uva vlog! :-)
By Scott Walker, at 1:09 PM, August 02, 2005
Great Vlog Josh!Enjoyed watching your videos for awhile, but I'm currently a bit behind so if you'll excuse me I have some watching to do!
By Doug M, at 9:01 PM, August 02, 2005
Now I see why everyone in the vlogosphere is talking about your video! It has a really great spirit about it.You are getting so good at this, you know!
By Hilton, at 9:44 PM, August 05, 2005
those are some weird cows ...
