For the time will come when they will have itching ears. 2 Timothy 4:3

Her ear itched in the pasture
With none else to scratch her.
Tho' a balancing act for a cow
Only way that she knew how
Was to stand on just three feet
For hind hoof and ear to meet!
Poetry by me AJP

I honestly didn't foresee that this was going to happen at the same time that I shot this picture 200 yards from our fence line of the Holstein cow in the neighbors pasture late this afternoon...

It made me realize what good balance these powerful creatures have to stand on three feet and scratch their ear at the same time with the remaining hind hoof.
