    The cows didn't jump high enough to indicate to me that they believed the white line was a fence or any upright barrier. Rather, they may have thought the white line was some kind of defect on the earth's surface that they should avoid stepping on or in.
    Not solid, stable ground. So they hopped over it with a little hop.

    They all jumped to clear the obstruction the leader saw and determined what was necessary to clear it. Followers did not want to take the chance they actually saw better than the leader did. Because if they did the follower would become the leader and none are smart enough to realize that or want it.

    Thats why its called herd mentality.

    Too much analyzing and not enough enjoying of cows "jumping" a road stripe. :lol:
