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 White Park is an all white cow with black points -- black ears, nose, hoofs, rims of the eyes, and teats, but not the tail switch.
- Three herds of White Park cattle (two in England and one in Scotland) date to the mid-1200s when the herds were enclosed.
- 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.
- Brahman cattle come in different colors, including black, brown, white, grey, red, and spotted, although solid grey and red are most common.
- In medium sized cattle, the rumen (one of the stomachs) by itself can hold between 25 to 75 gallons.
- 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 Brahman breed was developed from Bos indicus cattle from India. Four types of Bos indicus were used: the Gir, Guzerat, Nellore, and Krankrej.
- The first Ayrshires were imported into Connecticut in the late 1800s.
