(When On Earth)   In one rural community, the biggest event of the year is when locals race by grabbing the tails of two cows and making them run through mud. Surprisingly, this is not happening in America's South   (whenonearth.net) divider line 30

In the South it's less organized.


I'm willing to give it a go

Those are some epic pictures.

And in the South, they prefer to catch greased pigs.

"making them run through the mud". Is this unusual behavior for cows?

No we run large wheeled vehicles through mud and laugh about how stupid Yankees are to live up there with all those Canadians in the north.

Back when we had prison rodeos that was one of the best events.  Of course it was cruelty to the inmates so the stopped doing it.  Those convicts sure wanted that money around that pigs neck.

It goes on for 11months? That's a long race.

Ah, mud* surfing. One of the world's oldest sports.

Shortly afterwards they added a wheelbarrow to the cow but the cows proved too heavy and skittish to let you run with them so you had to sneak up behind the cows and attach the wheelbarrows to their tails so you could race them.

Voila, the invention of the chariot. Just one of those things I remember despite the fact that they happened thousands of years before I was born.

Tomorrow's Just So Tale from Brantgoose:  How Lazy Susan invented the first wheel using nothing but the tribe's nut-cracking rock and an another rock with a lump in the middle.

No, in the south they have cow pie bingo.

Well.  We're just crushed.  Fortunately I think we can find someone to console us.

That does look like a hoot. I'm wondering how some of our Angus would take to such shenanigans.

Maybe we haven't been doing it in the south.  But thanks for pointing it out.  Check back soon, because I'd be shocked if I don't hear about people trying this before long.
