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.

I had no idea cows came in so many shapes and colors. The Brahma bull at the botanical gardens was a particularly handsome specimen.
