you're right, they should be called "ore cookie" cows :)... i wonder if the milk used in one oreo cookie commercial came fro them... it would be funny if it was!

Beautiful pictures - everything is so green. I'm hoping after this latest rain, that things will green-up here in Maine. :)

Nice scene! I wish I were there now instead of typing in front of the window and watching the neighbor's dog take a leak on my tree.

What interesting markings on these cows. Happy WW!

Oh I'm gonna get grief for this but here goes anyway.

And they taste good, too!

Co-worker raises them; the meat is very lean.

Happy WW!

That was so interesting. I've never seen hat type of cow. We visited your beautiful state on our honeymoon 10 years ago. Cape Cod was glorious! I loved Plymouth too and Boston of course.

Beautiful photos. We have Angus cows - no oreo strip just all black. They are my big babies lol

Moi said...

Those look like Double Stuff Oreos. Yum!

OMG -- this is too funny.
I came over here from Hootin'Anni's because I forgot to check your WW.

When I arrived, it was through your profile and I though WOW she does not live that far from me (southern NH 45 min to Boston where I grew up). Then I saw your post about Orchard House being your favorite place. I am dying to go back there!

But the cows! When I first saw them, I thought they were wearing blankets! LOL

Hope you can stop by my blog for some laughs.
