Broken fence at Kvismaren

This is a Nature Reserve I visit a couple of times every year. It is located about 60 km from where I live. This time I wanted to see what happened to the fence after I was gone. When I last visited this place I found the fence broken with the cows entering the path. Curious cows always investigate what´s going on so they all came to this corner. Not good with a road close to it. 

In the background you can see one of the birding platforms and the water in front of it is just hinted in the last image.  

Well, this was an interesting event as I had to force the cows back into the enclosure and I tried to close it as best I could. Then I went quickly to my car and tried to find some people who could fix this. I found a woman who knew the owners of the cows and promised to tell them to go down there. Then I left for home. AND on the way I realized I did not take any images whatsoever. I was too busy with fixing the fence and the cows I forgot to take any shots. 

I guess that is a healthy sign? My first priority is to help.

This day I found the fence was not fixed but the cows was moved to the other side of the path, Closer to the water.

  1. sounds like what happens in texas, too. lots of owners do not fix their fencing well enough. at least you tried!

  2. Hello, great shots. I love the view with the cows. You are so nice to try to fix the fence. I hope the cows stay safe. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  3. It speaks to your good character ... save the cows, or anything else that happens by. Good for you. It would be nice, however, if they would fix the fence. Nice pictures though. A broken fence is more interesting photographically :)

  4. Love it! Me too. I hope the cows are staying safe! Thank you so much for this nice serie.

  5. I'm glad you went back to take more pics. Very nice for fences!

  6. How funny! Fix the cows and forget the pictures. That seems like something I would do.

  7. 'My first priority is to help" - very important line. Nowadays, people at an accident site will first take a picture or two, and then maybe have thoughts of helping the casualties.

  8. I'm sure the cows are always looking for the greener grass they've heard so much about on the other sides of fences.

    Good on you for being a helper!

  9. That was so nice of you to make sure the cows were safe. I do hope they have repaired the fence by now.


Welcome to my world!
