taking the good with the whiskers



For Pete's Sake! 

Why would a cow be in need of something that some of us girls dream of?
(and I know many males who lucked out as well!)

Look at the eyes and lashes on this fella!



Then again....along with the beautiful lashes~


it looks as though he also has to carry off a very large nose full of whiskers and ears full of hair!

I'll be happy for what I have,
Thank You.
:)

(Many thanks goes out to 'Red'....our model for this post. 
'Red' also works during the day, as my son's 4H steer project.)

Red is gorgeous. I agree with the eyelashes. They are so very lucky indeed.

Don't you ever sleep neither Dawn? lol I love cows eyelashes, great shot. I don't wish for eyelashes quite that long, they'd blind me! lol I'm quite happy with what I have and what I don't have I can add to with mascara! :-)

On top of it, living the life of very good. The Swiss Browns have a ring around their eyes that almost makes it look like makeup.Red, you can become a star.Love 4-H , I have bought quite a few projects.

As some grow older, the eye lashes get shorter, but the chin whiskers longer.

Trisha said...

I just love Red :) Such a pretty cow. I don't know what it is about them, but they just look like the sweetest animals.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

My husband has the most beautiful eyelashes! So aggravating! :) But ya know, I bet he gets ear hair as he gets older! LOL! Cute post.

my son had long, beautiful lashes when he was young. adults would always comment, so he wanted to cut them off! luckily he's grown into them. ;o)

i love cow faces. such sweet eyes. once someone told me and my husband that we reminded them of contented cows! We were much thinner back then so it wasn't because of our size!

Alan O'Riordan said...

Excuse my ignorance, what is a H4 steer? Great post!

Allison said...

Truly. I have to pluck a few black ones from my chin now and then (which makes me none too happy)! So I'll stick with shorter lashes and less facial hair, thank you very much! :D

You made me laugh!

Bandan said...

wow never thought of eyelashes for cows :D
But I just love the innocence of their faces :)

Canyon Girl said...

So many funny comments I don't know what to say here. I have to leave an unfunny comment: It's all about balance -- good and bad -- lashes and whiskers. That's ll I can come up with on a Sunday afternoon.--Inger

Rick said...

Phew - I was really wondering where you were going with this till I read the line about eye lashes ... ;-)

And I'm not sure 'cow' and 'fella' belong in the same sentence for the same animal - but, hey, let's not nitpick. (but if she batted an eye at me could I claim to have seen a chick flick ?)

Janie said...

Ha, ha! Cows do have beautiful eyes and lashes... and a lot of other things I'll pass on, too.

Heidi said...

Hi Dawn,
What a beautiful model you have in "Red", his/her eyes are gorgeous!...Have a great week!
