Cows Play in the Snow

We see this delightful behavior at animal sanctuaries.

Dairies that lock their cows inside claim that they’re protecting the cows, but when cows can enter and leave the barn on their own, and have ample room and accommodating, interesting surroundings, they choose to go outside nearly every day, regardless of weather, even if only for a short time. On nice days, the cows decide to be outside all the time, including at night.
