Jazz for French cows. They like the tuba.

A lovely find. This jazz impromptu in the French countryside causes a stir in the cattle.
Is that a Euphonium or a Tuba?  The group is The New Hot Five.  h/t Small Dead Animals.
This brings to mind fond memories of cows I have known. They are very smart though chiefly about cow things.  They have a capacity to stare at great length with mild curiosity. In Grade One we were introduced to William Henry Davies' poem "Leisure":
"What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows".
At that age, we had never been full of care and in fact were more like the cows.

Added: Cows come for cowboy music on the accordion too.
