CowParade: Holstein Parade



Holstein Parade
Location: Mifflin Street on the Capitol Square
Artist: Mary Heinze
Sponsor: Roundy’s / Kemps



Holstein Parade is one of the many cows ringing the outer edges of the Capitol Square and is located near the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. The Wisconsin Historical Museum can be seen in the background, as the two buildings are kitty corner to each other, with State Street angling off towards the UW campus between them.

Golly...this one almost looks like a regular cow. If cows had other cows painted on them. hehehehehe

I do like it, though. It's cute.

Yeah, from a distance she does look like a regular holstein - except, of course, no markings on her legs. Can't drive from here to there in Wisconsin without seeing a holstein. Personally, I like the Scottish longhairs we pass coming in to work. They are definitely the cutest.

I cannot believe how huge this cow parade is! BTW I saw a pair of painted cows here (well, in Launceston about 100k away) and thought of you. :-)

Only about 100 of them, LOL! There are five in Sun Prairie I haven't been able to see, and only one in Madison I've not seen yet (hope to this weekend, as it is within reasonable walking distance of the cemetery tour). And believe it or not, I've only posted 59...so far. ;-)
