Did you know all cows, female and male, can have horns? It is a common misconception made by many that only bulls (males) have horns. I’ve even heard a news anchor on a national show make this mistake after a news story about cattle. “No, Bob (named changed to save their embarrassment), I believe those were bulls in the background. They had horns.” I nearly fell off the couch laughing. So, the next time you drive by a pasture and see a cow with horns grazing, don’t assume it’s a boy. It might be a Bessie.

Yes heifers and bulls can both have horns, but can both have udders? I just saw an animated movie and the bulls had udders! I had to laugh. You know Disney sent their animators to the Caribbean to understand the underwater world of Nemo, you’d think these guys would spare a few hours at the local farm to understand the anatomical differences between male and female cattle! Love your posts by the way!
I believe your talking about the barnyard movie, and I have to agree, although I don’t want to see the other dangling down there in a kid movie either. I would have just left the area blank and save us all the embarassment.
