What is this cow thinking?

Download Primary Source Set:  A Cow's Tale

This cow is undoubtedly thinking that she'd like to be roaming somewhere in a nice green field, far far away from the University of California, where she could run wild, eat all the grass she wanted, and not be bothered by any students or faculty.  This cow's name is Maisie, an overused name for cows, but appropriate, nevertheless.  She's four years old and hopes that when her time is done here at UC Davis, she'll be able to travel widely before finally settling down with her longtime (and long-suffering) boyfriend, Eric.
