9/19/2003: Happy bovine



Happy Friday! I think it was xoxoxobruce who caught this one? A few of you have hit me with images recently and this one turns out to be the best animal pic in the queue, even those there are no details on it.

I lived near a farm for a short while as a kid, and there were always many odd sights like this. The farm was run by a Mennonite family of 15 kids, and it was the kids' job to work the farm while dad went to his day job at the local dairy.

The oddest sight I ever saw was when a pig up and died from something unknown, and I guess it was not to be processed for some reason. So one of the kids went and got a butcher knife and actually quartered the pig right there on the cement ground next to the barn, and then the two farm dogs dragged part of the carcass away UNDER the barn, and had full bellies for days on end. Luckily it was winter so there was no rotting going on.

Then there was the time one of the dogs picked a fight with the family horse. Both of these animals were completely tame; the dog was a friendly, happy German Shepherd Dog (Alsation), and the horse was a tiny little thing that the kids ran around. But on this day the dog decided to have some fun, and began circling the horse and nipping at its heels. After five minutes of this, the horse started to seriously tire (they were on a bit of a hill). Eventually the horse went down, at which point the dog felt it had an advantage and went in closer. And the horse used its final defense, and kicked the crap out of the dog! He wasn't seriously hurt, but he ran off with the traditional "yipe yipe yipe" sound. He learned his lesson that day.

These Mennonite kids were not allowed to watch TV or listen to the radio, and they were overjoyed the day I came over and told them the results of the Super Bowl so they wouldn't have to wait for the newspaper the next day to find out what happened.

But...how do we know he's *happy*? Looks like he's choking on something to me...or maybe watching MTV.



Serk  Friday Sep 19 03:18 PM

Choking, watching MTV, there's a difference?



Cam  Friday Sep 19 04:42 PM

Possibly trying to get a fly off his nose. Or throwing saliva on his back to get rid of flies. Then again it appears he has no flies on his back so what do I know.

I think Bevo's just happy to see us.

Well, then, the saliva thing must work!


xoxoxoBruce  Friday Sep 19 05:18 PM

No, Els. When they choke they put there heads down. Somebody was tempting this sucker with something that looked and probably smelled good.
Or maybe being fitted for an upper plate.

Your doing good UT.

I think he's tired.



Bitmap  Monday Sep 22 12:42 PM

where are his upper teeth? does he only have one row of teeth?



Griff  Monday Sep 22 12:45 PM

Cattle only get a bottom row... sucks to be them.

The nasty photographer is holding something yummy just out of range of that tongue.



nopaper  Monday Sep 22 04:45 PM

For those of you who want the source, the picture is from a petting zoo in Door County, Wisconsin named simply, "The Farm."

We used to spend vacation with family a week or two in Door County every year, and we'd always go to The Farm to wander around, get a few pictures and feed the animals.

This year, I had my digital cam in my pocket but didn't think to take any any shots around the place until we walked by this cow. It had learned how to get the attention of anyone who had a bag of corn in their hand. After laughing for a solid five minutes, I found the strength to steady myself and shoot a couple pics of this hungry cow. I posted those
cow pictures to my site.

I later uploaded my favorite cow picture to

Wow! Wow!

xoxoxoBruce picked it up at another images website whose name I forget. So... SORRY for inadvertently putting up the pic without your notice, nopaper! (When I can find a photographer's email address I usually write them first just to ask.)

So... is it okay if I post your shot as an Image of the Day? All your cow pics are hilarious!

Now... how on earth did you find us?



Cochese  Monday Sep 22 04:50 PM

An excellent pic, nopaper. I vote we keep nopaper subsidized so that he can continue to visit petting zoos and keep us smiling.

Certainly. I posted the pics for my own amusement, but to share with those that may also enjoy.

Cochese saw the pic and knew who took it. Small world :-)


warch  Monday Sep 22 05:00 PM

Well thats pretty cool!



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 22 05:11 PM

Hey, welcome to the Cellar Nopaper.
I found your picture on Everlasting Blort near the bottom of the page. The link is labeled Moo.
Notice how quickly UT dumped the blame on me. I guess when the FBI wants to know where he got those "Guppy" pictures I'm in deep shit.



nopaper  Monday Sep 22 05:15 PM

Oh, I'm not crying foul or anything... I'm just terribly amused the pic was noteworthy enough to make it around a few sites! Once someone omits credit for something like this, I don't figure it'll be given again. No worries.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 22 05:29 PM

Well I'm glad you found us because I really enjoyed seeing the rest of the series. It also validated my suspicion that there was food involved.



Undertoad  Monday Sep 22 05:32 PM

I figured I would get in deeper because I removed that website's name from the image.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 22 06:30 PM

I saw that in the upper left hand corner but I couldn't make out what it said. I was sure it wasn't the site I got it from, though. Oh well, we got a real cool new member out of it and it is a great picture as are the rest of the series.



Cochese  Friday Aug 13 12:54 PM

All, nopaper and I were doing a bike ride and while riding up a frieght elevator in complete darkness he asked me to take a picture of him. I did, and this was the result.

I thought it looked enough like his original cow picture to share.

Doesn't he play for KISS?
