the dogs have found a familiar, friendly face and seem to be looking for some treats. i love those big eyes in the second shot, Ray.
Ray: The dogs all love Na, Ayush.
Dogs and cows... an animal paradise...
Ray: The animals have it good, Larry.
And so pretty! Nice images!
Ray: They tend to be pleasant, placid animals, Elizabeth.
Cette vache est bien maigre. J'aime bien la forme de ses cornes.
Ray: Elle est légèrement construite par les normes européennes du bétail, Martine, mais elle est en parfait état pour une vache thaïlandaise.
Taking him out for a walk? How fun.
Ray: Na's brother was wanting me to shoot portraits of all the cows, Ginnie, and so he was parading her for me.

She is a fascinating looker, Ray, with lovely soft brown eyes
Ray: She is a typical Thai cow, Lisl...like the dogs, they are a mix of many breeds.

Lovely looking things but notta lotta meat on 'em. Maybe Thais don't eat beef much?
Ray: I think they favour these light-weight animals because they are easy to handle, Chris. Thais eat more pork than beef, but the trend seems to be to beef.

she seems to have grown rather thin, but she looks elegant.
Ray: They tend to be quite lightly built, Philine...this one is in prime condition.
Needs fattening up a bit for the pot Ray
Ray: Thai folks seem to prefer them this way, Bill, and she is in prime condition.

They are so very different in bulk to ours. They are very pretty, though.
Ray: Much more slightly built than a Hereford or and Angus, Alan.

They are very good-looking animals, and usually have a very placid nature.

I would have thought that ideal Ray.
Ray: Yes...this is how Thai people prefer them, Chad, and I think it makes sense in terms of ease of management.
Une vache très originale bien eloignée des nôtres
Avec un peu de retard , je te souhaite une très bonne année à  venir et que nos partages continuent
Amitiés Ray
Ray: Merci, Claudine. Je vous souhaite une bonne année 2018 aussi. Les bovins thaïlandais sont généralement assez petits comparés à ceux trouvés en Europe.
She doesn't look like a milker, nor would she hold much beef. What is it used for?
Ray: This one makes babies, Mary, but her offspring are raised for beef.

She is smallish, but very hardy and will most likely never see an Animal Doctor nor swallow a pill.
I was going to ask the same question as Mary, she doesn't seem to have enough meat on her for eating.
Ray: This one makes babies, Brian, but her offspring are raised for beef.

She is smallish, but very hardy and will most likely never see an Animal Doctor nor swallow a pill.
So different to our cows, what lovely droopy ears they have
Ray: Yes...I like their distinctive ears too, Martin.
A strange looking variety smile
Ray: Her DNA would make fascinating reading, Tom as she is the product of the mixing of many breeds.
