Holy Cow!

Did anyone catch the pic of the humongous bull from Somerset, England on the TODAY SHOW this morning? His name is Chilli and weighs about 2750lbs!
Can you imagine how much milk if it was a heffer?
HOLY COW!!!!!

That's not a nice thought, quicksilver.......Chilli worked so hard to put on 2750 pounds to be a "superstar" and you're trying to emasculate him by imagining mammary glands on him?????..........you'll be meeting with his lawyers soon and in court soon, I promise.............jest kidding......

I can tell that y'all are not farm girls.

Heifers don't give milk--a heifer is an young cow that has not yet given birth.

And Chilli is not a big cow--he is a bull. Cows are girls.

Cattle, on the other hand, can be girls or boys.

I saw the piece, too. He's 6' 6" tall. I can imagine that because one of our sons is that tall. WOW!!

His owner said he and a few other head of cattle were "dropped" at her place a few years ago. Folks "drop" kittens here a lot, but never a cow.

you're right---you never hear even the great and late John Wayne referred to as
"Bull Boy" or "Heifer-boy"
