Spring “Cow Dance” at Hoeve Biesland in the Netherlands

We love the Hoeve Biesland, which is located about a 10 minute cycle from where we live on the border of Delft and The Hague.  We and have attended several events there including the 2013 Biesland Dagen and 2012 Biesland Dagen.  We also enjoy shopping at their Weilandwinkel.

Today, it was “party time” again, as it was the day that the cows are let into the field for the first time after being housed inside all winter.  This was pretty exciting for both the cows and the several hundred people who turned up to watch!  Not so much so for the poor pig who got chased away by the over-energetic cows.

I did a Facebook Live Broadcast which you can watch below.  You can also check out a post my fellow Dutch Australian, Kristen, wrote over at Kristen in Clogland: Happy Spring Cows and the Koeiendans

Here are some of my favourite photos.
