The Hog Blog: It’s National Cow Appreciation Day!

Aww, how can you say no to that face? Harry the Red Devon steer, 2011

National Cow Appreciation Day, eh? Who could’ve imagined such a day existed?! Well, that Sally sure has been hamming it up around here, so I say moooove over, it’s about time I had my moment to shine!

It’s a bright and sun-shiny day at the National Colonial Farm, which means there will be lots and lots of visitors–from people fishing and children smiling to folks strolling around with their dogs. I simply love it when people visit, and I can’t think of a better way to appreciate me, er, I mean the cattle. So the next time you’re here, come find me and say hello. I’m usually grazing about in the fields around the National Colonial Farm, along Cedar Lane… I promise not to lick ya (hoofs crossed).

And since I’m not a “hog”, I’ll introduce ya to a few of my cattle friends here:

This is Rocky… or is it Bullwinkle? I can never tell these big guys apart.
