Old Foundation and a Potential Hazard

Friday afternoon,  I went back to Haley Farm into the pasture where I had started this 11x14 oil on panel the previous week.  However, this time the cows were present though out of sight.  After I got started a big cow discovered me, and came to within a couple feet.  The cow had horns and was snorting and drooling and covered with flies down its snout but its eyes only revealed curiosity.  I could easily imagine my puny easel pushed to the ground.   But the cow decided I wasn't so interesting after all and left to munch grass nearby.  I went into the pasture to begin with because of this view of the partially hidden house with the stone foundations of another  long gone structure.
