Two cute heifers

Photo credit: Delaware County 4H

These two cute heifers were on loan to the Delaware County, PA 4H Dairy Club this past summer. Jeanne, a reader of the Cow Diaries and the club leader, sent me this lovely photo of Oreo and Cocoa. They love treats!

Thanks for the photo, Jeanne!

Visit to a dairy farm

I know, I know, I'm only updating this thing about twice a year now. Not very impressive! Anyway, in January we visited a local dairy farm, which was fascinating. Here are a few pictures...

 Well HELLO!

Beautiful dairy cows.

Velvety soft!

 Ready to be milked.

Moooooo to you!

Glengarry Cows

Some of neighbours' lovely cows and calves, snoozing before the thunderstorms rolled in. See, it's true. Cows DO lie down when it's going to rain!

A cow in Buffalo, 1959

For reasons unknown to me, my mother took this photo of a cow in Buffalo, New York, in 1959.

The Knitted Cow Sling Returns

In a long-ago post on this neglected blog, I posted a link to a knitted cow sling. The link has since crapped out, so I went searching for more cow sling links. Here you go. Knitters, start your needles!

Cows of Sri Lanka

Uh yeah, it has indeed been two years since we visited Sri Lanka, and I am indeed only just now posting pictures of the COWS OF SRI LANKA!

A lot has gone on. since my -way-long-ago last post. We've moved twice and are now on the other side of the country from the lovely Clayburn Village cows. On a brighter note, we have our own farm now, and maybe one day I'll have a pet cow. But for now, I bring you some beautiful cattle from beautiful but troubled Sri Lanka.

That's a sign for yogurt and ice cream to the right of the calf!

Let's see if I can remember.... I think this was taken at Bundala National Park. Water buffalo, no?

Can you spot the cow in this photo? I was riding in one of those tuktuks when I took this!

"One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong..."

What a beautiful spotted creature!

Spot the water buffaloes!

So many cows in Sri Lanka, so many colours!

Okay, this was taken at some botanical gardens not too far from Kandy.

At the same botanical gardens:
