Taking The Cow For A Walk

Now, I don't know if this story is true or not, but my darling daughter swears it is.  When she was in high school one of her teachers raised "show cows".  If a student misbehaved, rather than give them detention or have them write lines, he offered the option of having them 'walk his cows'.  She said they had to walk the cow around the pasture for him because they needed to be handled for when he showed them.

You decide if it's true or not.  I just smile when I think of it, though.

I just wonder how cooperative those cows were.

Sounds true that show cows need to be walked to be tamed. That a teacher would offer that as an alternative seems a stretch unless the teacher lived near the school. Must have been a long, long time ago before liability and helicopter parents though. lol
