  1. Jimmy Buffet always said "Life is just a tire swing". I wonder what he would say about eating tires.

  4. Aaargh! J'accuse! S***w Germany and music of SME and GEMA! I contend that just because I'm a stoopidly law-abiding citizen of some stoopid other country is not reason sufficient to deprive me of innocent 7MSN videos, dammit! Could everybody please get their stoopid royalties issues act together?! (Aren't y'all stinkin' rich enough as it is??) Man alive. Block the tune, but for cryin' out loud let me **please** at least watch the video! This is ridiculous, IMO. And childish. GROW UP, (company) politics! (And if politics in general were to finally grow up, people wouldn't have to focus, as a means of self-preservation, on the tie of a moderator in lieu of on politicians' speeches, hint, hint!!) What if I promise to kill the sound, will SME or whatever/whoever else let me watch, sans sound?!????? Aaargh! The third time in just a few weeks now! (Sorry, dear Carson, don't publish this - it's just that I feel so discriminated against, I just had to vent!)

    1. I'm touched that you value my weird little videos so much. Which two besides this one have been banned in Germany? I'll add them to youtube minus the music and send you the links.

    2. Oh wow, really?, thank you!! And thank you for not telling ME to "grow up"... ;-) Yes, absolutely, I do value your wonderful little videos greatly - after all they, and your blog in general, sustain me in my weird little darn city life!! I just hope it isn't all a royal pain for you if you do re-post to yt minus the music? I mean, I might, okay, *will* survive even if I don't get to enjoy those videos! But... here they are, the other recent two that "eluded" me: Oct. 1, My New Favorite Food Hack, and Oct. 6, She Keeps The Home Fires Burnin'. THANK YOU!!! :-)

      YouTube let me make a copy of today's video without the music. If this works for you, I'll do the other two.

    4. Great, this worked beautifully, thanks again! Smooch's excited whine is so cute, and she sure has an excellent sense of equilibrium on that rough road! About Honey the Cow's penchant for rubber - I've seen that sometimes old truck or tractor tires are used like a bowl to hold a mix of minerals for free-ranging cattle, so I'm hoping that the cow is just getting some remaining mineral molecules off the tire and not actually eating the rubber. Or maybe she is eating it, and that is why all of her sisters have left, disgusted. :-? Thanks for the neat video!

  5. Known as "hardware disease", some cows will eat anything in the pasture left laying around, including nails and wire, and apparently old tires!

  6. Good Friday morning!! Well, that is certainly a curious thing ... odd enough that I might actually ask someone if that is "normal" for a cow to do.
    Smooch wanted to get out and have a conversation with Ms. Moo ... LOL
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs from Marcia in CO

  7. I wonder if she is mineral deficient.

  8. Maybe it's a cow's version of gum...

  9. she looks pregnant, so maybe she's having cravings...? Probably a mineral shortage though. Maybe you can bring her a salt licking stone?

  10. Give it about a year then go back and get another skeleton....

  11. I agree with "n" above, that cows will eat or at least chew on anything out of curiousity, then if perhaps this tire was used to hold mineral and salt, like we do here on our place, then she's enjoying the remaining coating of "seasoning"... Like licking your fingers after eating Cheetos! If you drive by that place again, and the tire really is garbage and not an in-use mineral feeder, I'm sure the rancher would appreciate it if you'd haul it off. Eating weird things will kill a cow, and having that temptation gone would be helpful.
