The many cows of Old Town San Diego – Part 1

I took my kids to San Diego’s Old Town this past weekend. We hadn’t been there for a very long time and they were too young to remember any of it then. We had a great time visiting the various old buildings and museums, watching the blacksmiths working their art, sitting at school desks at the first San Diego schools… And to my surprise, we saw a lot of cows. How many cows, you’ll ask? So many I’ll split them in a couple of posts.

So let’s get started, shall we? I found the first two cows in the San Diego Old Town visitor center. The first one used to be a real cow but is now just a cowhide.

The second cow I saw there has a full body but it’s never been a real cow at any point. That doesn’t stop it from looking really cute, and happy.

The last cow for today is, er… actually made out of cow parts. More specifically, it’s a chair made out of cow horns. I found it in one of the several museums in Old Town. I want to bet this chair is not really kid friendly or kid safe.

Stay tuned for more cows from Old Town! They’re coming in later this week and there still are plenty of them…
