Thursday Shout Out: The Heifers Have It!

In honor of our first trip to Strolling of the Heifers on Saturday, this weeks shout out is all about the beautiful bovine. Did you know that a heifer is a female that has not given birth, whereas a cow has had a baby or two? True story. Now you can’t say we’ve never taught you anything!

Enjoy, and we hope to see you at the Meatbagz Booth in a few days!

Peekaboo Guernsey Heifer 4×6 Fine Art Photo by blewe. $7. The softness of this baby’s eyes is trumped only by the softness of the photograph. Blewe’s original photo is simple, sweet, and perfect. You can’t really ask for anything more than that, can you? No, you can’t. So stop reading this and go over to blewe’s shop and check out all of her farm fresh photography. We promise you’ll be glad you did. (Just make sure you come back when you’re done, okay?)

Jersey Cow Print by Toxicguineapigs. $12. This 8″x10″ print is graphic, fun, and, to be honest, pretty much awesometown.We love the unexpected minimalist take on the traditional subject, not to mention the orange background. Hang this in a kitchen, a kid’s room, or heck, any room in the house (how about a grouping of any of Toxicguineapigs prints, hmmmm? You’re welcome.) you’re sure to win the blue ribbon in decorating.

wee cows grazing on moss by weegreenspot. $35. Okay, so everyone’s not lucky enough to live with pastures in their backyard. We understand. But luckily weegreenspot has solved that problem and created this adorable terrarium. Housed in a vintage jar and complete with a mama cow and her baby grazing happily on the greenest moss you’ve ever seen, this will make even the dullest of urban landscapes seem like you’re back home on the farm.

Modern Abstract Cow Painting On Canvas by artman757. $525. This gorgeous original painting reminds us of hot summer days, walking through the fields, watching the old girls grazing peacefully. Occasional cow patties aside, those were the best days, and this amazing painting captures that feeling. We’re not sure if this mama is going to rush us to keep us away from her calf or if she’s just wondering what the heck we’re up to, but she’s beautiful just the same.

  1. Fabulous painting! Thanks for sharing some beMOOOOtiful finds. 🙂

  2. Those are all lovely! And I can not believe that, having spent a good portion of my formative years in a barn, I did not know the difference between a heifer and a cow.

  3. Heifers are girl bovines that haven’t had babies yet, sometimes first timers are still called heifers, even though technically they aren’t. Girl bovines that have had babies are cows.
