Kind of makes sense, domesticated animals dont have to think as much for themselves when it comes to looking for food, shelter, a mate etc...
Also they don't need to problem-solve in domestic life as they would in the wild. But then, we rarely get to see just how intelligent farm animals are - they are just these big blobs of potential meat/milk/wool lumbering around fields. I bet, if they teamed up, they could do the Times Crossword...

A mate had a 3 legged ram called Chop, he acted just like a dog would follow you about
and would try to join in anything going on, was working on something or other and heard
this twang twang from the back of my Land rover, went round the back and Chop was stretching
a bungee cord from the back letting it go then repeat.
My mate would get a call from the local cops, can you please go and get your sheep it's chasing
the local dogs all over the village, my mate would drive round call Chop and he would hop into
the back of the car for the ride home, a very odd Sheep indeed was Chop, he had a long and
happy life dying from a heart attack several years later.

Just been watching Midsummer Murders were someone attempted murder by cows,
surprisingly for that program they failed.
