The big bovine is still present. The gate at the location says 9568, but entering 9560 into Google Maps will take you right to it.

The giant cow is on the side of the road in Benbrook. I drove past it once at night and it scared me to death. It's a little less menacing in the daylight.

Giant Cow - Vague Recollections

This big cow used to be out in front of a sale barn in Mansfield, I believe. I used to play under it and pretend like I was milking it when I would go with my dad to the sale...I always begged him to buy it for me, and he never did, but it makes me smile everytime I see it...takes me back.

Cow statue.

Giant Cow

Saw this cow (very different from the typical kind) on my way to Aledo on the East side of FM-1187.

[Scott Mobley, 02/25/2009]

Seems to be fiberglass from the standard big cow molds, though this statue has unusual solid coppery-brown eyes, like a returned extraterrestrial abductee. More about Big Bovines.
