Cattle, like most animals, respond to how they have been treated. Generally and if well raised, they have incredibly kind and gentle natures which extends beyond their herd to humans that they trust. They are usually quiet creatures who are very affectionate and love to be touched, stroked or scratched.
They don’t have the same energy or flight response as horses and their acquiescence and stature slows me down. The more time you spend with them the better our relationship with them becomes as they can transmit a sense of peace which is healing in its therapy. I love the challenge of gaining their trust and find that their acceptance and friendship is my happy place and is an immense privilege.
