So far, Mary is the only one listed on the calendar.
Maybe she is going because of the Aussie connection, and not so much as Denmark representative? i dunno

Today, it's again time to celebrate that all our Danish organic cows are going to get green grass under their hooves in summer time.

And our Mary (and perhaps some of the children?) will let the cows out. It's always a cozy day and funny to see how the cows they literally are dancing when they are closed out of the barn and get grass under the hooves.

"75 organic farmers across the country invites to a day when you can watch organic cows dancing enthusiastically in the pasture after a long winter in the barn. A huge amount of spectators visit these farms on this early eco day, last year about 193.000 Danes."



*****

LIVE TV:

Isabella, Vincent and Josephine are joining her!

We are coming very close. Good close up live pictures of the children.

**

Deligthful live pictures...

Bella, Vincent and Josephine all got a child tattoo with "I love eco".

Josephine made sure to wave and say "bye bye" every time they left a post.

Inside the barn we could hear both Isabella and Josephine say "Mommy, it smeeeells" and hold for their noses. To much amusement of the people around.

So the red ribbon should been cut and Vincent was very ready, he stretched out his hand... But it was Bella who as the oldest was allowed to cut the red ribbon while Vincent and Josephine they both hold the red ribbon.

And then it was time to the cows to get on grass and Vincent made sure to say "run, run, run" to every single cow.

And then I learned royal children say "Mom, Mom, Mommy" just ​​as much as every other children They're some active children and Mary had at one time to run after Vincent and Josephine when they had walked a little too far away after a cow they had seen. But just as confident they are, as much they all three from time to time felt the need to cuddle with mother when too many looked at them.

Delightful!

Vincent seems a bit overwhelmed by the smell, though.

Notice the straw-rubber in the middle of the picture. When the cows need a good scratching they walk up to the straw-rubber.

About 15.000 present. The normal at the individual farms is about 1.500-2.000 spectators.

Ah, there is also a cow-cam.

The cows are eager, they know when there are lots of humans around it's time to go on grass.

The cow-cam has tilted.

Perfect day for Mary to bring her youngest.
The farmer, Per, gives a speech.
The chairman of eco-farming is also called Per. The Minister for Agriculture is not named Per, but that's an oversight that will be corrected...

Eco-cows must go on grass, while only 16 % of conventional milk-cows go on grass.

Nice. This must the first year Vincent and Josephine can really understand what it is about.

It sounds like Vincent is shouting for the cows to run. While standing on the fence, he has a thing about fences that boy.
Yep, it's Vincent we can hear, he's gonna be hoarse tonight!

Bella waving to the cow-cam or rather the cow with the cow-cam.

Vincent and Josephine has certainly taken a few lessons from sister Bella in let's charm and take a few dance moves.

Perhaps he was cowering under a bush with his dad?

My apologies.

Is there a place where we can re-watch the livestream of the event? I didn't get to see the livestream but I'd love to see a video.

Isabella and Josephine didn't seem that impressed with the smells, though it looked as if Vincent didn't seem to mind as much as his sisters. Love the anecdotes of them telling Mary that it smelt, that's very cute.

I love Josephine's facial expression in this photo. It seems that like little Estelle in Sweden, she's another little royal who is rather expressive.

Can you watch this clip from the regional news? Øko-køer på græs til kongelige tilråb - Lorry - Nyheder - REGIONEN

There were 8.000 spectators present.

An estimated 200.000 went to see the cows on grass at the 75 eco farms that opened for the public for the day.
The farmer stated that there is a rodeo cowboy inside Vincent.

It was a nice event to bring the children and they are indeed some expressive and involved kids which always make them so fun to watch. Looks like it's never boring with them around

Christian? We know Christian goes to football and that it's his father who goes with him to the football rallies. Or he simply left the smelly cows and cow dung for his younger siblings!

Thanks Muhler. Notice Vincent busy shouting "run, run, run .." to the cows, the owner of the farm ended with saying he believe a good rodeo cowboy is hidden in him.

This picture need much more attention. A good way to teach the children and it already seems so natural for them.

Fun to have seen live stream and can give little information about the pictures:

Picture of Vincent and Josephine eating a little yogurt snack with milk from the cows - before they nicely asked Mom if it was okay they could get that yogurt.
https://scontent-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hp...18&oe=55DA95A1

Mary had three lively children to watch, hundreds of Danes around while the event's two organizers told and told her about their products. And then it can suddenly become too much and Mary was about to go home with the carton milk she in a moment forgot she had in her hand She delivered it back with a laugh and a "oh, I guess it's not supposed I should have this milk with home."

Thanks Polyesco.

This picture is the best IMO. Zoom in on Bella. Smiling quietly. A very sweet picture.
And in case you haven't noticed, elaborate braids is high fashion these days among girls.

ADDED: A nice long video from BB: http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige...ig-til-oekodag

The pet-calf is named Sulle and she isn't that certain about all the attention. And Vincent yelling in a very Copenhagener accent suggest the calf would rather join the others.
At 1:25 or so someone calls out Mary's name and she obligingly look up and wave.
2:50 cutting ribbons is an art and Bella hasn't quite mastered it yet, even with the help of her younger siblings so mor Mary had to help. As Roskilde pointed out Vincent was perfectly willing to do the cutting himself, but there are perks in being the older sister...
Towards the very end, you can clearly hear Vincent (standing on the fence as always...) repeating "løb = run" to each and every cow. There were more than 200 eco-cows there, so that must have amounted to a lot of "run's"!

- Now, this naturally isn't just for fun and a nice Sunday outing. Ecological farming is serious business and big business I might add! Especially in regards to export.
With the increasing consumer awareness on animal welfare this is something DK is also working hard on and even though ecological products are expensive there are plenty of consumers out there willing to pay extra to ensure that the animals have had a good life. (Even down to the life-story of the individual cow!).

ADDED: From Royalista: http://royalista.com/98082/mary-chil...ch-cows-dance/
Judging from Josephine's facial expressions Bella might have a competitor.

This video is definitely worth seeing Many nice little moments.
Some bubbly and natural children and every time we see them I'm pleased to see how comfortable and confident they all four now are with both the press and all the people looking at them. I especially notice the little family photo session around 3:25 into the video where we see they are completely comfortable and has a very natural approach towards the press. Vincent even with his arms in the air. Christian is a clear example too. A very confident boy. Well done, F&M. We know how much Frederik struggled with this already from when he was a little boy.

How fun! Josephine the city girl was not sure about that cow especially when it tried to kiss her but Vincent is a little cowboy in disguise and Mary in a classic mom moment snatching those scissors when her daughter was flinging them around. Was Christian at school then or maybe having a boys day with dad?

Very cute pictures and videos.
Vincent seems like a country boy. All 4 look like they enjoy animals and nature.

of the picture of Vincent and Josephine eating, it looks like Vincent is left handed?
I noticed this a bit during the Greenland trip to, Vincent using his left hand more

Have noticed as well. He also draws with the left hand. BB has also mentioned that he seems to be left-handed.

Yes I can, thank you very much for providing the video Muhler. It looked as if it was a very fun event for the children. Vincent seemed to be the most enthusiastic about the cow race, but I also noticed that towards the end of the video Isabella and Josephine were getting more involved too.
It appears that the twins love climbing!

And an extra thanks for providing the longer video from Billed Bladet, Muhler. What was Vincent saying at the beginning of the video, when Isabella and Josephine were stroking the cow? I loved how Josephine seemed a bit unsure about the cow at first, but then seemed to be brave and have a go at stroking it. Very cute.

It appears that Josephine will be like her older sister Isabella in the near future in personality (and they also look quite alike, IMO).
