I've seen (youtube) several cows drink from wallows, and I've seen them swim around in ponds, but I've never seen a cow actually roll around in a wallow. Wondering if anyone has ever seen this? if so can you post a link?

I have seen cows wade out into water holes, but never wallow in the mud. I talked to an young cow the other day and she was aghast at the thought of "wallowing in the mud like a dirty ole bull". She said something on the order of "a lady just does not do things like that."

Jaquomo, don't you know the difference between a cow nursing a sore hoof and one wallowing?

Ha, I guess a bunch of them have sore hooves because I have photos of several different ones laying in that wallow and in other wallows. Perhaps, since you speak to cows, you should ask....
