can cows make poetry?
New York artist Nathan Banks has been busy with a very peculiar project: he painted single words on the flanks of about 60 cows. When the cows wandered and happened to compose a line or a compound, he would snatch a picture or tape it on video. My favorite line in the article:
‘”There was a big concern that the cows would be stressed and give less milk,” [artist] Banks said. [Farmer] Gerry Ruestow said milk production actually went up a bit, “probably because the cows were a bit more active. The cows were as interested in the observers as the observers were in the cows.”‘
See, it’s not just milk that’s good for you. For healthy bones, you need poetry too.
