I just read a very interesting AP (Associated Press) article on Yahoo News about a number of dairy farms that are pampering their cows to improve their overall well-being, and in return increase their milk production.

Some dairy cows are getting a lot of pampering including massages, chiropractic treatments, and new water beds. The article even mentions the use of classical music but one of the interviewees dismisses that cows care about listening to music. I’ll have to disagree with this observation. Do you remember the post I wrote on cows enjoying jazz music? Here’s the video again. You can’t tell me cows don’t appreciate good music when they hear it!

Well, this hasn’t happened for a long time now, but I finally ran into another cow stuck in a claw machine this morning while shopping at the grocery store with my son. It looked so cute (and a little weird too), I can’t believe nobody has tried to rescue it yet. Wait, I know why. Have you ever tried to grab a stuffed toy out of the claw machine? Yep, I wouldn’t waste my dollar either.

Now this reminds me of a very funny scene in the original Toy Story movie, when Buzz Lightyear and Woody end up getting trapped in a claw machine. I LOVE Buzz’s first question to the aliens: “Who’s in charge here?” Their answer? “The claaaaawwww…” Enjoy!

Having a Facebook page for Every Day I See A Cow has a few privileges. It helps me reach people through Facebook and interact with them. And once in a while, someone will post something about cows they want me to see.
Recently the group Not In My Cuppa, whose goal is to bring awareness about the well-being of dairy cows in the UK and improve their conditions, invited me to check out a link on my wall. The link went to the Cow Dance website, created by the WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals).
Dancing cows - Cow dance
If you want to smile and laugh for a few minutes, I invite you to visit their website and watch a few videos of very happy cows being released in the fields after being locked up in the barn for the winter. Check them out jumping, kicking their back legs in the air, rolling in the grass… They couldn’t be happier. Here’s just one video of dancing cows to give you a taste.

No, my son didn’t get a cow pinata for his birthday party. Or any pinata actually, since I don’t really trust bilndfolded four-year olds swinging a bat around. I mean, would you?
My kids love watching the Curious George videos and I recently borrowed a few more DVDs from our local library. One of them is called “Curious George goes to a birthday party“.
Curious George goes to a birthday party DVD
The first episode is called “Pinata Vision” and George is invited to swing a bat at the pinata during a birthday party. Things don’t go so well and George ends up making quite a mess – a rather entertaining scene for my kids. Here’s the back of the DVD box, showing George and the pinata.

But wait, there’s more! If you take a close look at the list of episodes, you’ll notice the last episode on the DVD is called “Keep Out Cows.” And there happens to be a LOT of cows in this one, as in a whole herd, all eager to devour a large field of wildflowers while George tries his best to stop them.
The first thing Curious George manages to do is give one of the cows a good taste of the flowers. Chump!
Curious George - Keep out cows
It only takes a few minutes for the other cows to figure out where the good food is. As they make their way towards the wildflowers George tries to put arrows down for them to follow. Thanks to this episode, I learned with George that cows can’t read arrow signs.

Poor little monkey, he deserves an A for effort.

Seth Godin, marketing genius and author of Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable, should be very interested in today’s cow. And if you’ve never seen a purple cow, you’re about to see one.
I spotted it online about a week ago in one of those Yahoo Odd News videos. This little purple calf was recently born in Serbia, and even though it looks more gray than purple, it’s still being called a purple cow, which is a very rare occurrence.

And if you think this purple cow is not purple enough to your taste, there’s nothing Photoshop can’t fix.
And if this still doesn’t do and you want the ultimate purple cow, just go back to reading my recent post on the Milka cow. Now, that’s purple!
