For Becky

Correinte cows and sky 2
One of my mom’s friend is an artist.

She thought all horned cows were Longhorns and was unaware of the Corriente breed. (As was I before I dated Newt.)

Corrientes are smaller cows that originated in Mexico. Their horns are smaller, too. You can actually buy papered (registered) Corrientes. Now these cattle are used as roping or bulldogging cattle in rodeos.

So Becky, here are some pictures of the Corrientes. If it doesn’t rain, you can buy the entire herd. Happy sculpting!
