Drove by yesterday and saw that "Smitty" the cow is still checking things out. He must have gotten a bath for the holidays. Looked good.

The Smith Dairy cow, "Smitty," left her post for about a year for a much needed makeover in 2003 - 2004. She returned to her lofty vantage point on the silo in May 2004.

The "Towering Cow" on top of the Smith Dairy milk silo in Downtown Orrville, Ohio that I reported a couple of years is no where to be found based on my visit in April 2003.
