    That topknot makes her look like a little girl — surely she deserves a ribbon around that hank of hair! I grew up hearing the phrase “How now, brown cow,” but didn’t realize it had been used as an elocution tool. We always called root beer floats ‘brown cows.’

  12. Love the photo and adorable topknot and whiskers!😁

  13. Isha says:

    Hahah, what a caption! 😁

  14. Debbie says:

    Eliza, how in the world did you get that cow to pose for you?? She looks so thoughtful, not like she was concerned over a person with a camera sneaking up to capture her picture — well done!

    Sweet !

  23. Widdershins says:

    Heh, a bunch of other commenters beat me to the ‘how no’ punch. 😀 … they’re such beautiful creatures, aren’t they? 🙂

  24. She’s lovely ~ I love all the shades of brown in her hairs!

    Cows are so sweet (most of the time). I played violin for some once and they came and stood by the fence listening. Of course, apparently the alligators were attracted to the first governor of Florida’s fiddle as well, crawling onto his back lawn to listen. And it was the ears I loved on this lovely creature, but the topknot is endearing as well.

    You sure know how to bring out a smile, Eliza! Such a great photo.

  29. Cows are actually quite lovely with beautiful eyes…at least most are. Look at those whiskers. 🙂
    Nice profile!

    One of my favorite sayings… and I am embarrassed to admit that for so long how I loved brown cows for their chocolate milk they delivered (my Mom still loves reminding me of this!). Cheers to a good Friday and coming weekend, Eliza.

  32. I think the brown ones are the prettiest. Here, it’s funny that I often see them segregated … brown in one pasture, black in another. Calving season has started … they are so cute!

      I love cows and calves particularly. We lived next to a dairy farm when my son was a baby and we loved going into the barn to see the newborns… so adorable. Interestingly, cows are prejudiced against others that don’t look like them, so maybe that is why they are kept in separate pastures. I remember the Jerseys would be bullied by the Holsteins and were forced to the back of the line at the milking parlor (which was also when they were fed, thus the competition to be fed first). I always felt sad for those poor Jerseys!
