Glitter, clover and a great view, what more does a cow want? Acer the Fresian was designed by well known artist Robert Juniper for the 2010 Margaret River CowParade. She can be currently found watching the comings and going from the Jahroc Galleries.
There was as much fun in finding this friggin cow as there was in interrupting people eating to photograph it. Guernicow was designed by artist Jo Taylor for the Margaret River CowParade and can be found mingling with the patrons of Gnarabar.
Jo Taylor – Inspired by Picasso’s habit of moving limbs and adding bits in unusual places, rather than the depiction of the civil war destruction of Guernica.
OK Loons, you might not have a chance to read what’s scribed on the Cattle Chosen ( Yulika) cow so I will give you my Friggin Loon version. Many moons ago, when Western Australia was pretty much a hell hole and settlers were pissed at being given land that was a nightmare to clear, the Bussell brothers arrived from England to try their luck. They agreed to take up land in Augusta in the hope of setting up farming land. However, it turned out to be a friggin nightmare just trying to clear the tall timbers, let alone trying to grow anything. So when their homestead burned down and their friggin cow, Yulika, did a runner they decided to move to a property in Busselton (yes, eventually named after them) 60 miles away. When they arrived and began setting up home who should they discover grazing on the new property? Yes, that bloody cow Yulika AND her calf. So the Bussells decided to call their new property Cattle Chosen.
This cow was designed by artist Louise Elscot.
Looking rather inconspicuous at the Perth Domestic airport the Wild Flora cow quietly watches people come and go . The blooming bovine was designed by artist E.M. Leavesley for the Margaret River Cowparade.
Now I must say this cow was quite hard to find as it was strategically hidden around the lake at Bettany’s Winery and it was friggin raining!!!!! This colorful cow was designed by artists Joyce Hatchett and Julie Oakley for the 2010 Margaret River Cowparade.
Artist Ken Done and news reader Natalie Barr created the Sunrise cow during one of the Sunrise programs (An Australian morning news show) for the 2010 Margaret River CowParade.
The Maggie May cow spends all day, every day, just watching the cars coming and going along Busssell Highway in Cowaramup.Lucky for her she has 30 coats of varnish to protect her from the elements!
OK for all the loons who haven’t a clue what SES stands for, it’s out State Emergency Services. Yes, they’re the ones who put out bushfires, look for lost people, help during cyclones and basically do all the thankless crap no one else wants to do. So anywho MooSES, a mini moo, was designed by Dee Credaro and the Augusta Margaret River SES members. MooSES is a special bovine because it roams around. You just never know where it is going to turn up.
