  2. I have never heard that before! Look at this article I found about cows laying down before rain and the theories people have. https://www.livescience.com/22445-do-cows-really-lie-down-when-it-s-about-to-rain.html

    One thought is that cow legs are micro-porous structures that rapidly absorb moisture and they can no longer hold the weight of the cow...ridiculous? sounds silly to me! Thank you for commenting.
