Audrey, who runs a rescue organization,
www.potbellymanor.org, has a
really cool cow car (which we've featured before, but here is a new photo):
Audrey had a cow named Bette for many years, who sadly passed away at just
over 12 years. Audrey had her from a baby and has buried Bette on her farm.
She's kept the cow car in her memory.
She also rescued a baby bull and trained him for parades, where he walks
in front of the cow car. His name is Sir Wickford and his trainer is
At the Memorial Day Parade in Wickford
A couple of pictures Clive sent of the Stock Judging Event with the

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 ancestors of the Texas Longhorn were the cattle brought to America in the 1600s.
- 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 Dexter started to become known in the 1700s when small farmers found the Dexter very practical for use on small plots of land. Later, the novelty of the cute, small bovines, made them popular on English estates.
- The Dutch first brought Holsteins into New York; at that time the cows were simply called Dutch cattle.
- It takes about 10 volumes of milk to get 1 volume of cheese.
- 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.
- The Holstein produces the most milk of all breeds.
- The mean gestation period for Holsteins is 279 days. The mean gestation period for Brown Swiss is 290 days.
