Have you ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a cow with a giraffe? Yeah, me neither. Well, that’s until earlier this week, when I heard my kid say, “Mama, you’ve got to see this!”
He’s right, I had to see it and now you’re seeing it too. I present you the cow giraffe!
Isn’t it cute? It came from a bag full of self-adhesive foam animal shapes similar to this one. It’s the only animal in the bag that looks this close to a cow.
By the way, if you’re curious to know what happens when you cross other animals together, I have one more for you. What happens when you cross a leopard and a cow? A leopard cow, of course! Courtesy of the Cow Parade people.

This is the third post in my series on the marketing power of cows in print ads. You can view the veggie cow of LightLife and the jumping cow for Over the Moon milk if you missed them earlier this week.
Today, our print ad cows are actually bulls. Huge bulls! Two of them. They’re telling me to watch a TV show called Big Rich Texas, which I’d never heard of until I saw this ad. It probably doesn’t help that I don’t watch TV.
Are you ready to see this ad? Warning: it’s a little disturbing, in several ways.
The bulls of Big Rich Texas
Wow, did you see the bulls’ golden horns? That’s some shiny bull… Oh, and let’s not forget the golden nose ring. Very classy.
Did you notice the woman sitting on the bull is wearing leather? How about a cowhide outfit? Now THAT would have impressed me.
And that tagline, “You can’t keep the bull out of the country club”? I’ll admit that’s a little more catchy than the Over the Moon milk tagline (“believe”).
If you’ve ever watched Big Rich Texas, I want to hear what it’s like, so please share your comments below.

This afternoon I was planning to share another print ad I recently spotted in a magazine (see cow print ad #1 here and cow print ad #2 here). I actually starting writing the post, but then I took a break and read a fellow blogger’s post and thought I’d highlight her post instead. Why? Because she’s got a cow image in there. With lots of cows…
The way she moos
Now that you’ve met your cow quota for today, hop over to Robin’s blog and her post on “Sentences that sing”. She features a really good sentence out of her upcoming novel. And no, the sentence doesn’t mention any cows. :-)

This is my last cow sighting report for 2012 and it’s very special. It’s the last of the cow gifts I received for Christmas and it’s very, very cute. The clue I gave you previously was, it’s something you wear but it’s not clothing. Did you guess? It’s a cow brooch!
Purple cow brooch
There have been all sorts of cows on this blog but this is the very first cow brooch. Apparently, it’s not that unique because there are a lot of cow brooches out there. Who knew?
And look, it’s a purple cow, how special! Of course, it holds its special place among the other purple cows on this blog, including:
- Seth Godin’s Purple Cow
- The Milka cow (here too)
- A real purple cow
There you have it, a whole herd of purple cows. I can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to 2012 and welcome the new year.
Happy 2013, everyone!

I love the WordPress new photo gallery feature and this is a great way to display a lot of photos in one post. I also love the opportunity to review a year of cows by showcasing the best of the year. If you missed my Top 10 Best Cows of 2011, make sure you take a look.
This year, there was no runaway cow (at least that I know of) and no ugly cow sofa, but still plenty of memorable cows for 2012. They include my very own cow slippers, as well as a whole shelf of cow slippers I almost bought, skiing cows, cow artwork, the Skinny Cow, the American Flag cow, the cow from the Puss in Boots movie, the udder rings, the birthday balloon cow, the grossest birthday card cow, the cow flashlight, the bug-eyed cow, the hot air balloon cow and the lawn mowing / bulimic cow. Enjoy!
