Unlike in the U.S., cows in the Netherlands spend much of the year trapped inside their barns.
These cramped creatures finally get a bit of fresh air once summer rolls around.
After being pent up for six months, they tend to be a little stir-crazy, so the Dutch have made an event out of setting the cows free.
Tourists and townspeople flock to dairy farms on the first day of summer and watch as the cows get to see grass for the first time in half a year.
The cows’ reactions to their newfound freedom is absolutely priceless – some even go as far as to jump for joy!
