OK, imagine you are a cow. Now walking up, most of the weight of your body is down and back, and your knees bend helping you push yourself up. Now walking down, most of the weight is on your front legs, and your knees bend and point down the stairs, and with all the weight and the very real possibility that you could tumble down frontwards, you just won't do it.

But, you say, I see cows go down hills all the time in John Wayne movies.

Yes, they do down hills, but the sides of the hills are not broken up by STEPS that cause you to , as it were, go on faith that the next step is short enough that you won't trip.

Think of it as you woujld a child, kids will first start to climb UP steps, but getting them to go down takes a lot of patience and care by the parents, till they learn to walk down.

Not if it's too steep and the steps too narrow for them to go down.

NO, they are too top heavy and if they tried to walk downstairs they would fall forward on their face.

From what I hear, It is possible to lead a cow up the stairs. But you cannot lead them down!

A cow will walk, trot, or gallop.

Equip your milker when the cow is an adult. Walk up to the cow. Use the milker.

The stifle is the knee joint - it allows the cow to bend the hind leg and walk.

"Downstairs" can be an adverb, an adjective, or a noun: (as adverb) We went downstairs. (as adjective) This house has a downstairs bedroom. (as noun) The downstairs is flooded.

It depends on the cow. Most cows will walk around and sometimes run. But ussually movement is slow

When the animals are in the pasture, all you do is push the cow from behind into the double doors on the outside of the barn. The cow will automatically go in, get milked, then walk back out. :)

Simple just go up very close to the cow NOT RUNNING, then when you walk straight into it your avatar should start pushing the cow. If your cow is not old enough to graze, then wait until about 25 days.

Cows often walk in single file because the lead cow knows where she is going. The lead cow usually knows most convenient way to get from one place to another.
