Omrop Fryslân, a Dutch television station, captured the cows’ first taste of independence on camera. When the milk cows enter through the barn doors and see the blue sky, they completely flip out and start jumping for delight.

Cows, according to Canadian experts Anne Marie de Passille and Jeffrey Rushen, who study cow behavior, enjoy changes in scenery. “Whenever anything new or unexpected happens,” they jump, and their steps become more apparent. Video below:
