We’ve seldom seen cows so happy that they show it.

Ireland witnessed a harsh, cold and wet winter this season, which is why the owner of these cows, Steven Houston, felt it essential to house them indoors till spring came. It turned out to be an endless eight months of surviving without going out in the open.

The cows’ reaction at the sight of sunshine and green grass (video above) is something we can either relate to, or be wistful about, depending on the state our lives are in.
