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 Watusi has the biggest horns -- the horns' spread can reach up to 8 feet across, and the diameter of the horns at the base can be as large as 8 inches.
- 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.
- The smallest breed of cow is the Dexter.
- Whole milk contains about 4% fat. Low-fat milk contains 1 or 2 percent fat. Skim milk has less than 1/2 percent fat.
- The ancestors of the Texas Longhorn were the cattle brought to America in the 1600s.
- Milk is an emulsion (a suspension of small particles of one liquid in another where the two liquids do not mix) of fat and protein in water, along with dissolved sugars (carbohydrates), minerals, and vitamins.
- Brahman cows stand about 4 feet high at the withers (not including the hump), and weigh an average of 1200-1300 pounds.
- Milking Shorthorns are usually red on their backs, sides, and faces, with white stomachs, but they can be all red, all white, or roan.
