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!
- Cheese has been made since ancient times. Milk from cows, and possibly other animals, was made into cheese by approximately 1000 BC.
- Holsteins are typically white cows with big, black spots that usually cover 50% of the cow's body.
- There are an estimated 920 cow breeds in the world!
- 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.
- Milking Shorthorns are usually red on their backs, sides, and faces, with white stomachs, but they can be all red, all white, or roan.
- It takes about 10 volumes of milk to get 1 volume of cheese.
- The Simmental was officially establish in the Swiss Canton of Berne in the 1800s (the first herdbook), but there is evidence that this type of cattle had been in existence for hundreds of years before that.
- Three herds of White Park cattle (two in England and one in Scotland) date to the mid-1200s when the herds were enclosed.
