Molly the Cow

Molly is still on the top of the hill, but on our drive past on 4/20/23 she had toppled over and is both hard to see and not at all photogenic.

[Keith Hewitt, 04/29/2023]

A winter windstorm toppled Molly. Standing a tipped cow upright is never easy, especially one that's 15 feet high.

Molly The Cow

Molly The Cow sits atop a hillside on Frenchman Knob Farms in Bonnieville overlooking the traffic along Interstate 65. After her retirement in 2013, Molly was moo-ved to the pasture. She is visible from the interstate and is not publicly accessible.

Large Cow in a Field

There is a large cow statue in a farmer's field along I-65 near Bonnieville. When I drove by it to take some photos it had about ten real cows around its legs, feeding on hay and grass. When I exited the freeway to turn around and head back north about ten minutes later, the real cows were gone, so there's no guarantee you will always see them along with the statue. The large cow is attached by cables to the field and is not on any type of trailer, so it must be a permanent fixture.
