People love the cows and can't stop talking about them. The cows are pretty damn cool. This is my favorite, called "Pasture Bedtime", which is mosaiced with hundreds of clocks and watch faces:
Unfortunately, these cows are going through some serious abuse. In a well thought out plan, the cows were placed around Madison's Capitol Square and down State Street, which connects the Capitol to the University of Wisconsin. The whole area is full of bars so you can imagine what happens when the sun goes down. People get their picture taken with the cows. They pretend to milk the cows. And, of course, they ride the cows. Everybody rides the cows. When the parade is over, the cows are supposed to be auctioned off for charity, but I don't see how they can last that long. In another month, there's not going to be a cow in Madison that still has its horns or teats.
Poor, poor cows.
