high in the himalayas

High in the Himalayas

The last of the herdboys had left
and the cows were on their own for the summer

What do you guys feel like doing today?

Let’s go check out that pasture up near the ridge
It looks lush and delicious


And so the cows took a walk up the hill
to graze among the apple trees
and the pears

♫ ♫ ♫

These purple flowers taste really good

So do these yellow ones

These white ones over here are pretty good too
and the grass is excellent

This weed over here is some of the best I’ve ever had

And so the cows spent the morning
eating grass,
watching butterflies
and leaping
high into the air

♫ ♫ ♫

I’m thirsty

Me too

Let’s drink some water

Good idea

And so the cows walked slowly,
taking their time,
in the direction of a nearby stream

♫ ♫ ♫

This water is really good
Much better than what they give us in town

Fresh is best

The higher the better

Man, this water is clean!

Look at the fish
They look like rainbows

Rainbows are cool

If we go over and stand behind that waterfall
we’ll be able to see a rainbow

Let’s go

And so the cows headed further up the mountain,
stopping here and there
to try the local delicacies

♫ ♫ ♫

Dude, try this grass over here
It’s amazing

Dude, this whole hillside is paradise
These little blue flowers are divine




And then the cows had a mooing session
and sang
until they felt like moving on

♫ ♫ ♫

That rainbow is pretty cool

It’s awesome

And this cave is nice and cool
Let’s have a rest

The other cows agreed
and so they all lay down
and took a nap

♫ ♫ ♫

I dreamed I was walking in a field of tall grass,
grass that came up to my shoulders,
and it was the most delicious grass I had ever tasted

I dreamed I spent the day in a cannabis field
eating my way to the center

I had a nightmare
I dreamed that the humans came back early
and forced us to return to the village

Let’s go take a bath
That pool of water down there looks pretty inviting

Yeah, man,
let’s go

And so down they went
to the bottom of the waterfall
and took a late afternoon dip
in the pool

♫ ♫ ♫

I’m a bit hungry

Me too

I could eat a whole meadow

Let’s head back to the pine forest
There’s some excellent tall grass between the trees
and those big boulders

Yeah, that grass is high end
Pure Himachal oat

Pure is nice
but I prefer a good blend
Oat and clover is my favorite

Oat and clover is pretty good

Barley and clover is pretty good too

barley and clover

Barley and oat is not bad
With a bit of clover

barley, oat and clover
What a treat

Let’s go

And off they went
to the tall grass
to have an early dinner

♫ ♫ ♫

What shall we have for dessert?

How about some ganja?
There’s a nice patch of it over by the cherry trees

Sounds good to me

Let’s go

And so the cows headed over
to the cherry orchard
to nibble on some weed

♫ ♫ ♫

Man, I’m full

Me too

Where shall we sleep tonight?

Somewhere safe from the bears would be good

Yeah, man
Those bears are dangerous

Bears, humans and flies,
the bain of our existence

I’m not sure we can do much about the flies,
but we might be able to defend ourselves against a bear
if we all get up and run towards it together
Let’s take turns standing guard

Good idea

I’ll take the first watch

I’ve got the second

Wake me when it’s my turn

Anyone know a good bedtime story?

My cousin crossed the big river last year
and never came back

Maybe he got eaten by a bear

Maybe he found a place without bears

Or humans

Or flies

Perhaps we should go there

It’s worth a try

let’s cross the big river tomorrow

Sounds good to me

Yeah, it looks pretty green over there

And maybe there won’t be any bears

Or humans

Or flies

We’ll find out tomorrow

I’m tired

Me too

Time for bed





And so the cows lay down
for the night
and began to dream
