Big Cow

An easy stop off the byway, along with a few other Roadside America attractions right in a row. Cow udder is more veiny than we expected, but maybe we are city folk.

Didn't see any other smaller cows... plenty of parking in front. Masked for public health.

To a previous post about the "Big Cows" on Pendleton Pike in Indianapolis. Me and my son visited and found these in late September 2004. Left is the larger one near the Lawrence water tower; right is at Cohron's Mobile Homes.

Big Cow

Just northeast of I-465 on Pendleton Pike is a giant cow. It is located in front of Cohron's RVs and has been there as long as I can remember. It is now joined by two calves. I'm not sure what they are made of but they are lots of fun to see. Right now the owners have them painted blue and gold in honor of the Pacers making the NBA playoff finals !
