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!
- There are an estimated 920 cow breeds in the world!
- Yogurt is a fermented milk food that can have a semifluid or custardlike texture.
- The native home of the Tarentaise cow is very mountainous; no other French cattle graze in an area with as high an altitude and such dramatic changes in elevation.
- Occasionally, a red-spotted Holstein will be born. Red is the recessive color.
- Ungulate is a term for any hoofed mammal. Cows are considered even-toed ungulates. (Pigs, camels, and deer are also even-toed ungulates.)
- The Dutch first brought Holsteins into New York; at that time the cows were simply called Dutch cattle.
- Milking Shorthorns are usually red on their backs, sides, and faces, with white stomachs, but they can be all red, all white, or roan.
- Canadienne cattle were developed in Canada from animals imported from France (Normandy and Brittany) during the 1600s and 1700s.
