The farmer warned Lulu and her pals that the path from the pasture was too steep - but it went in one ear and out the udder.
So the three silly moos had to travel by cable-car to get home again before it was time for milking.
Lulu and the others didn't cowculate how steep the pathway they ambled down near the historic German castle of Neuschwanstein in Bavaria was.
By the time they got to the bottom for some scenic cud-chewing in a juicy, virgin pasture, there was no way back up.
The path was too difficult and they were in no mood for mountaineering.
Help came in the form of the local mountain rescue who hitched the hapless heifers one by one to the local cable-car used by hikers for a free ride home.
For the mountain rescuers, it was all in day's work.
'It happens quite a lot,' said one, 'but usually we end up airlifting the cows back home via helicopter.
'It just so happened this trio ended up stuck near the cable car station so we were able to use the cable car. They were quite cool about it.'
After some fresh grass and a good milking, the cows were settled in their stall for the evening with the high-life behind them for good.
