Cattle typically hesitate to walk over a puddle or shadow. This can be overcome by allowing the leader time to lower its head to investigate the puddle.  The leader is more likely to cross the puddle after it has time to investigate the puddle and is satisfied the puddle is safe. If the leader is rushed, she will balk and all the cattle may turn back.
