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."

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 Brown Swiss is originally from -- Switzerland! The Swiss cow is called Swiss Brown or Braunvieh.
- Holsteins are typically white cows with big, black spots that usually cover 50% of the cow's body.
- The South Devon are usually a light brownish-red. The skin has a light red pigment. The muzzle is wide and buff colored.
- The Chianina is the largest cow (or bull for that matter).
- 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.
- The Dutch first brought Holsteins into New York; at that time the cows were simply called Dutch cattle.
- Herefords are typically a reddish-brown color with white on the head, legs, tail, and underbelly. Occasionally there are "yellow" Herefords born; these are a golden yellow color but still have the white spots. However, they are very rare.
- 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.
