Gas Station Cow with Word Balloon

It's on the main corner of town.

[Ken, 03/31/2016]

The idea of a milk price word balloon and cow seemed map-worthy when this was first submitted. Now we can see the cow is not very large, and an awkward photo subject on the roof. And the word balloon looks broken.

Rio Linda Cow

A cow is on the roof of a local gas station/market. She has been here for as long as I can remember, and gets a new paint job every so often.

[Janel, 07/23/2014]

The large cow statue, which appears to be a one-of-a-kind model, stands on the roof of a gas station island and has her own cartoon word balloon to advertise the current price of a gallon of milk.
