Hi Douglas, nice bull. I have also one in my collection. Greetings, Anne

Hi Douglas, how could I overlook that yours is a cow?! But they would make a very nice couple. Greetings, Anne

I found it outside a primary school on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. It really stood out as it was painted so brightly on what was a very dull and wet day. I think this was the best photo I took that day. I suspect it is more for fun and amusement than for educational purposes.

Hi Douglas, I remember seeing this cow when I visited Edinburgh in May.

As you say, I think it is more for amusement than education.

Strangely, it was also dull and grey (and very windy) when I was there.

Yes, it was in May this year when I spotted it too. I had just got my new camera and thought I would try it out while my wife attended a meeting in Edinburgh. Unfortunately it was a very dull and wet day and I did not get many good photos. This cow was the most colourful shot I took all day.

Looks like Old McDonald may have had some drugs, too. Great shot, and a complement to junebug's German bulls. I just had a horrid thought: what if they got together?

The result might be interesting, Chip! Greetings!:-)

Yes, it might. The process might be interesting too.
