Cows stuck in a corner

Cows are herding animals, social creatures. They travel in bunches to grass, water, grass, water, shade, grass, grass. You get the idea. In fact, they become very stressed when forced away from the group. It's this instinct that makes them easy, and difficult, to manage.

Cows & Chows
