Cow Cuddling-its real

[ Edited ]

 I had not heard of this, has anyone else heard of it?

 

Bring relaxation, healing, awareness about your body language, comfort, Mindfulness, build assertiveness, help with overcoming fear, build confidence, lets you be playful and teaches you to set boundaries. It can help you work through obstacles in your life and it can be helpful if you feel stuck and you are looking for a new way.

 

They explain that cows are gentle, sensitive and intuitive creatures and have the ability to read your body language:

They will pick up on what’s going on inside and sense if you are happy, sad, feel lost, anxious or are excited and they will respond to that without judgement, ego or agenda.

Cows have a body temperature that is slightly higher than humans and their heart rate is lower than ours. Cuddling up with a cow, feeling that lower heart rate and higher body temperature, is very relaxing.

Before you decide to go rogue and drive out to the middle of nowhere to cuddle up with some random cow, stop. The sessions are facilitated by an equine specialist and a licensed counselor who will ensure an emotionally safe environment, allowing you the time and space you need to relax, heal, learn, and grow.

Just wait until you're cuddling your cow, it suddenly jerks it's head up and crashes it's big, hard skull into yours.  You'll see stars, not peace and serenity.

It's all fun and games untill they grow up and will walk right over and trample you to get to the feed. "Cuddle" with that.

Been there, done that, raised 3 or 4 of them on bottles.  They are cute and cuddly when they are very young!  Not so much after that.  Other than that, I don't think the OP is a very accurate description.  They don't much pick up on what you are doing or how you feel?

 

Horses?  OH yes.  They are great at sensing your mood, standing with you to comfort you or just hang out, doing things just for the fun of irritating you, playing, and are to me as good a pet as a dog.  But maybe I'm biased about that opinion. 

 

I have spent a lot of time around horses and cows, so I feel qualified to express my opinion on that subject.  Horses are curious and want to be near people (at least many of them) where cows aren't really into you and what you are doing.

they don't get treated so hot in Tx. I told a farmer close to me he had a cow dying and one with a broken leg. He told me off. I called the law and they said if it's on their own land then nothing could be done.

ASPCA would have a field day in Tx. they get no shelter from extreme weather. they just figure if they lose a few here and there always be another cow birthing.

 

Wasn't like that up in Ind.

I will add that in some ways, horses remind me of cats.  Curious, want their noses in what you are doing, and even if you love 'em can be a pain in the behind!  Woman LOL

It is a good thing the cuddling sessions will be monitored by professionals.

 

Years ago, when there were horses running around Colonial Williamsburg, I was sitting on a fence and stroking the head of one.  I decided to give it a hug and the horse was not happy.

 

My arm was not pretty after the incident.
