Ever seen an Oreo cookie cow?

by TrevR on March 30, 2007

OK, so this one’s admittedly a bit odd. Ever since we can remember there have been some strange looking beings roaming the hills of the Napa Valley. And no, we’re not talking about Martians or anything that resembles Alf. We can’t help but wonder if we’re the only ones who look at something and automatically think how much it resembles a cookie.

Next time you’re driving north on Highway 29 and you pass the Highway 121 intersection (the left turn to head towards Sonoma) you’ll come around a slight left bend in the highway. At that point, take a look off to the hillside on your left hand side (caution: only extremely skilled drivers should attempt this stunt).

If you’re looking in the right spot, you’ll be staring at Stewart Ranch, which has some of the most amazing-looking cows we’ve ever seen. The ranch is owned and run by Ailene Pritchett and her husband Jim McGlothern and apparently their interesting cows even got the attention of Good Morning America a few years ago.

We recently snapped a couple photos of the “Oreo cookie cows” as we like to call them, and have inserted them here for your viewing pleasure. Happy Friday.

    They are belted galloways if thats any use. Quite popular in New Zealand for hobby farms.

    The Belted Glloways are also to be seen in South Freeport, Maine. We passed them last night as we returned to our hotel from the Lunch and Lobster Pound and the feast of a lifetime in Narraganset.
    We were reminded of the last ones we saw in December 2008 in the Falkland Islands.

    Yes! I immediately named these oreo cookie cows when I first saw them traveling on the roads over looking Bodega Bay.
