Clive shared two photos of a two-day old heifer:
Audrey, who had shared photos of her old cow car, had to get a new one. She
writes, "I had let the COW CAR go to pasture, but it took me several months taking off everything on my old town car to put on the new town car 2001. But we did it with help from many friends and the Military -- we got her back on the road. Bette had a complete make over and the cow car is flasher than ever. She moo's and has many other sounds too. I had the other car for almost ten years and we are hoping for the same with this one...I made her a tribute to Bette."
Donna also sent some photos of the new cow car...

Quick Cow facts:
Do cows have horns? Yes, female bovines almost always have horns. While
some cows are naturally polled (which means horn-free), the majority have their
horns removed when they are calves to make them safer to handle. So, YES,
cows can indeed have horns!
Oreo cookie cows? Yes, there are "belted" bovines out there!
More cow facts!
- The Texas Longhorn is spotted and comes in a variety of colors. They have long legs, high shoulders, and an easy stride. Their horns average a span of 5 1/2 feet.
- Modern domestic cattle are believed to belong to either the species Bos taurus (Holstein, Jersey, Guernsey, Brown Swiss, for example), or the species Bos indicus which are humped cattle like the Red Sindhi. Some cattle are a cross between these two species.
- There are approximately 350 squirts in a gallon of milk.
- Red Sindhi cattle are usually a deep red, but can range in color from light red or brown through to dark red or dark brown. They have a hump on their shoulder area.
- Milking Shorthorns are usually red on their backs, sides, and faces, with white stomachs, but they can be all red, all white, or roan.
- The Danish Red is, as could be expected, red. The bull is a darker color than the cow.
- The Dutch Belted is a black cow with a white "belt." Their history is a bit unclear before the 1600s. A few records and paintings show belted cows grazing on the estates of Dutch nobility before this time.
- The Chianina is the largest cow (or bull for that matter).
