When I was a child there was a very famous cow named Elsie. Does anyone remember her, or am I just older than dirt? :wave:
Clover from Stew Leonards...Woody13 said:Elsie was the first animatronic figure I ever saw. I grew up on a tenant farm in Virginia and we grew crops, raised chickens (collected eggs), milked cows (no machines), slopped pigs and that sort of thing. My Mom would go to the grocery store with fresh eggs and milk and trade the store owner (Mr. Garber) for other things our family needed. We never had any cash that I can remember.
At the store, they had this big Elsie the cow head chewing her cud! I was only 4 years old and that thing fascinated me. While my Mom was bartering with Mr. Garber in another part of the store, I was watching Elsie. She really appeared to be a contented cow IMO. I really liked her.
As a child, I used to fret over sick farm animals. I always wondered why there weren't cow, pig or chicken cemeteries.
Wow, I'm impressed with all the people who remember Elsie. I wish she was still around for others to see. :wave:
Thank you for that link! That is Elsie just as I remember her. It's just a shame that I missed seeing her in Texas by one day. I have that site bookmarked and perhaps I will be able to see her next year.AliciaLuvzDizne said:

But, at least I now know that others can see her. She's a good cow. Thanks again! :wave:
