Richard Herrmann, of Oregon, has been learning to play the saxophone for seven months and is getting better every day. He doesn’t often get the chance to play for an audience, though, and recently, as he and his wife were out on a run together, they had the best idea.
“My wife and I run together past the field occasionally,” Herrmann told The Dodo. “The cows always seem curious. I asked my wife, ‘I wonder if they would come if I played the saxophone?’ She said, ‘Let's try it.’”
There are videos all over the internet of people playing music for animals, and Herrmann decided it was his turn to give it a try. He and his wife drove over to the field and got out of the car, and Herrmann quickly got into position.
