Polish cow. Cow Sculptures

Who let the cows out? Moove around Thorp and find the 12 life-size cow sculptures. This town of 1630 people is small enough that you can see all the cows in about an hour if you drive, or two hours if you walk or bike. The town is roughly 11 city blocks by 9 city blocks. There is a Tree City Cow, Flower Cow, Pumpkin Cow, Cardinal Cow, Cheese Cow, Quilted Cow, Cammooflage Cow, Intellectual Cow, Aquatic Cow, Polish Cow, Yellowstone Trail Cow, and a Patriotic Cow. The Polish Cow pays tribute to the area's Polish residents, the Flower Cow is the most colorful, and the Cammooflage Cow is the hardest to find; it really blends into the surroundings. We did the scavenger hunt to see all of them and it was udderly fun.
