Flying Swiss Cows

Bet You’ve Never Seen This Before!


Ever wonder how the people of Switzerland get all their cows in place for the summer tourist season? …Or how they maintain them?


This one had to go into the shop for some body work.


Actually, one of our guests recently finished the Eiger Trail and sent us these interesting photos. It looks like the old girl ate a bit too much rösti on her way down from the Hohthurli pass.

Seriously, she needed to go to the doctor but refused to walk down the mountain paths. Only in Switzerland would a farmer actually bring in a helicopter to deliver a queasy cow to the doctor’s office. This is just one more reason why I love this little alpine country.

Thank you Moshe for these wonderful photos.
