Almost hit a cow and a horse????

Two days ago Im doing 70 on a two lane highway and this crazy fella with no shirt waving his arms runs across the road infront of me Im laughing to myself thinking what a nut. (We have a few meth heads out here) a second later right as im getting to him I see a horse out of the corner of my eye running straight at me... That horse just missed me by a few feet....... Then I got up early this morning and adjusted some things on my bike and took it out for a test run. The car infront of me tapped its brakes so I started looking I counted 3 cows when I went by one on the left and two on the right. The black one had a -7 brand on its side thats Mr Powel's cows. Tell's ya how close I was. Later I went back to check the GoPro there were 4. I havent seen any livestock on the roads in quite a while then 5 in two days thats crazy......

I was riding on a farm road the other night. As I was rolling on the throttle through a nice 90 degree corner a huge cow got scared by my exhaust and jumped right in the middle of the street!! It was a scary moment and kind of awkward making eye contact with a cow, haha. Luckily I wasn't going very fast so I was able to avoid him.

That's crazy. In AZ we don't have much livestock but I've came close to hitting a couple coyotes in the last few weeks.
