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.

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

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.

Huge Cow Statue

On the north side of highway 1187 west towards Aledo from Fort Worth there is a huge statue of a cow on the north side of the road.
