Reaching for a Snack

Driving through the country, it’s not uncommon to see a cow reaching its head through a fence to get a piece of tasty grass growing tall outside the pasture. In the case of this pachyderm, the tasty hay was up high and slightly boxed in. It was something to see this guy use his trunk to twist the hay out the side of the wires and pull out a huge clump to munch. Watching the end of the trunk feel around the box where he couldn’t see and twist the hay out was amusing. The reward must have been worth it, because he seemed to be having a good time.
