Guess it’s time for another “I wonder, thought/question!
This one may not make sense to those of you who do not have and or love animals. But I do, so here goes….
Where we live there are quite a few cow farms, but this particular one has cows/bulls with a big hump on their backs. I think they are called Brahman, I’m not positive but I think so.
There is a long fenced three sided walk way that these cows walk around, coming to the end is a tree. I have never driven by when there isn’t 6 to 10 cows standing in a circle around this tree.
A month or so ago as we were driving by I noticed that all the cows or bulls where white, except one who was brown. This must have stayed with me in the back of my mind… We have five dogs, four different breeds, and sizes. I have always had animals, but with working and raising kids I have never gotten as close to them as I have these five. Partly I believe is because I’m here with them 24/7 and you really see them in every situation.
A few days later I’m looking at my dogs who are just being dogs, when the vision of the cows comes to mind and then I wondered???
I have been told several times that animals can’t tell colors, but….. I start to wonder what do they see? (I’m sure all the racial problems recently are probably in the back of my head about now). I wonder if they can see at least shades of dark and light? Then I wonder if the see any differences, any kind of animal, and if they react to it like us crazy humans do?
What do you think, know, or wonder? Have you ever seen an animal react differently to another of the same species or of color? Do you think animals have any preferences or prejudice’s?
