When the Cows come home....#1

OMCs(Oh my Cows) someone let some purrty snazzy cows loose in our city.  When Mom
told me all about the project, I got so excited I I told Mom I was going to turn on my lasers.

 Mom has been udderly utterly amazed by the creativity of the artists involved in this project.
The will be on display for about a month then each and every one will be auctioned off to raise money for the UNC Children's Hospital.
This is Ciao Bella Uno

Mom hopes to show you as many as she can find.


  1. Those are great! We have horses like that in my town. But they get put away each year and brought out again in July. They stay until the end of September. I like what your city does better.

  2. That is pawsome! We can't wait to see more of them. Have a great Thursday, Madi. XOXOXO from your mancat, Prancer Pie.

  3. We can see why you got so excited Madi, that is one cool cow. And what a great cause too. We will be looking forward to seeing more of these bovines.

  4. They are fantastic aren't they Madi mate? Need photos of you sitting on them though! In Mum's home city there is a fantastic bronze bull statue in the city centre, but it's not nearly as pretty as your cows! Deccy x

  5. Madi, that is so cool, we had the same kind of event in Wisconsin when Mommy and Daddy lived there, and Mommy says it was so much fun. Thank you for showing that, it made Mommy smile sooooooo big.

    Best wishes Molly

  9. How Mooooooovelous ;D

    Glad your laser eyes spotted them Madi! :)

    Can't wait to see what other ones you find!

    Waggin at ya,

  10. Madi,

    Painted cows are cool! We lives near Saratoga Springs NY AND Bennington Vt so Mom sees painted horses in Saratoga and painted mooses when her is in Bennington!
    Happy Thursday BFFF!

    Woofs and Licks,

  11. Knoxville did that with a bear here a few years ago. It's funs. xoxox

  12. We did the same thing... but with horses.
    Our favorite one looks like a chocolate candy horse being unwrapped.. it is on the side of one of the best Irish Pubs in the city...
    Here are a couple shots mom found on flickr:

    Pretty cool huh? Cannot wait to see the pictures of your moo cows!

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  13. That cow is sure a pretty one. Wonder what color milk she gives? ;)

  14. What a great idea to raise money. So Madi, are you going to have one of those cows in your house. Might be something nice to nap on. Looks like a lot of fun having the cows around. At least get one for the yard. Take care.

  15. wow, that is one colorful cow. keep those lasers honed and ready just in case she brings one home. if you were here you could see giant 6 foot metal gecko's all over town.

  16. It should be fun for your mom to find and photograph as many as she can. I can't wait to see more.


  17. Wishin' I could have seen it, too. Barking at cows is one of my favorite things. Trudy

  18. How fun! Hope your mom is able to find lots and lots of these gorgeous bovines!

  19. So awesome! Hope you can spot some more around town!

  20. In our city, it was Pigs!!! Big huge pigs painted creatively and artistically like that. They were the pigs of seattle. A few years ago, they sold them off to raise money for the children's hospital or something. I think there were like... 12 pigs alltogether. Now you might find one in the oddest places. I found one in an old time red and white striped barber shop with this giant blue pig to greet customers.

  21. Mom says they do this in Kansas City at The Plaza. The cows are so unique and colorful and amazingly well decorated. We have had Bunnies too - at Easter time.

    How wonderful that the money raised will go to such a great cause.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  22. Brilliant idea - I wonder how they are made.

  23. Momma used to live in Chicago, and they had the cows furst, then a few years later they had pieces of furniture! It was really neat to see them all over the city.

  24. Neat!!!!

    We had a whole school, pod or street full of catfish a while back in Jackson.

  25. Oh, that is sooo cool! Very colorful! Here we have pianos that artist decorate and then they're put around the city and anyone can just sit and play em'. They didn't do it this year thou. Bummer. Maybe next year. I love the cows though!



    pees: LOVE the laser eyes!!

  26. I wonder if it gives multi-colored milk!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  27. Those are very snazzy cows! The cows in the fields near us don't look pretty like them.

  28. Those are some snazzy bovines!!!

  29. Madi what a rad cow and such a unique way to raise money for the hospital. Like some of the others Mom only thought that these works of art were done with ceramic horses as this was the type she saw in New York when she went to Saratoga.

  30. BOL....This year for the RNC they have done the same thing with dolphins. We don't want to go anywhere near Tampa this week but hopefully we'll get over there to take pictures before all the dolphins disappear.

  31. That's one colorful cow! We can't wait to see more!!

  32. Those cows are pawesome!
    We had many of them here.... until someone stole one of them! Hmmm.... Viva Mexico!
    Kisses and hugs

  33. WOW Madi I like your cow. It was fun chasing down our 100 pigs. I had my picture taken with most of them.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
