“Barrel of laughs” cow filmed running down field with blue bucket on its head

HILARIOUS video shows a cow charging down a field – with a blue bucket swinging on its head.

The clip, filmed by Louisa Queen, from Edinburgh, shows a herd of cows charging ahead, with the bucket-headed cow desperately trying not to fall behind.

Louisa saw the odd sight whilst on the Hebridean Way in Uist around two weeks ago.

She posted the video on Facebook last Saturday, on a public Facebook page, where the funny cow gained a lot of fans.

She prefaced the video with the caption: “Saw this little cracker on Uist last week while walking the Hebridean Way.”

The clip begins with the group of cows of different colours charging from the distance and into view towards the direction of Louise.

Louisa filming the action remarks: “It’s not very often you get to see this thundering down the road towards you.”

The cows pass by to Louise’s left, and the camera zooms in slightly.

Louisa then says: “Especially this guy.”

The brown cow, bucket over its head and swinging all over the place, then comes into view.

The cow is travelling at a fast pace for having it’s vision reduced so severely, although it can see out of the bucket’s bottom end.

It passes by to Louisa’s left, the bucket dangling and jumping up and down on the cow’s head, as the video clip comes to an end.

Most Facebook users found the funny side to the video, some coming up with puns to add to the hilarity.

Darren Mackie wrote: “A barrel of laughs.”

Mark Doverty said: “Blinkers are supposed to help them run faster.”

Craig McGovern commented: “Looks like something out of Ferdinand.”

At least some people were concerned for the animal’s welfare.

Valentina Conway wrote: “Aw poor beast, it needs help not laughed at.”
