 Can you elaborate a little on this for we non-farm types?

It looks like it is time to put the 'cow thread' to rest.

Once again, I have let my keyboard overload my knowledge.

The original question was "Is a horse that is lying down
dead?"  The research was enlarged to include cows, and
the question became "How do horses and cows lie down?"

Not wanting to go out in the field and trying to wake
lying horses and cows, I decided on the survey method
of research.  The survey consisted of three questions.
The first was "Do you know the difference between a horse
and a cow?"  If the answer was "No." then the survey ended
and questions two and three were not asked.

Question two and three were "How does a horse lie down?"
and "How does a cow lie down?"  This survey was conducted
over thirty five years ago and horses and cows may have
changed since then.

The survey concluded that horses lie down with their legs
sticking straight out or with their legs tucked under
them, and cows lie only with their legs tucked under.

Talking to my wife about this (she knows I am crazy,
but she humor's me) she had some interesting facts about
horses and cows.  A horse gets up head first.  While a
cow gets up back end first.  (If it was the reverse I
could have used a more colorful expression) So I guess
that if one is not sure if a animal lying in a field
is dead or alive, it is only necessary to pull its tail
a few times.  If the end with the tail raises first,
then it is a live cow.  If the other end raises first,
it is a live horse.  If neither end rises, then it is a
big dead animal.

A word of warning, horses can go up stairs but because
of the way their fetlocks are, they can't come back
down the stairs.  So there are two things you should
never do.  Ride a horse up stairs or microwave a bar
of Ivory Soap.

Its not that there is anything wrong with cows, mind you, but
the topic of cows has come up in other mailing lists that I am
subscribed to.  Why do cows keep coming up as an off-topic
thread?  In the PIC List, the subject of "cow tipping" ran for
several days!

  Bill, I spent most of my adult life in the country and around cowboys and
ladies. During one rodeo season, a young bull rider with an excess of
Te`killya' in him, rode a Quarter horse up on the dance stage at the local
honky tonk and did a fairly good `4-step' dance with the band. I'm not sure
how it ended as we also had an excess of the same beverage and were on the
floor laughing, but I do know the cowboy and the horse successfully
negotiated the stairs on the way out ;-)
