On the way to lunch with my friend Joy/Maine, (as opposed to Joy/Tucson) in Freeport, Maine last Friday, we passed by a field of the most amazing cattle. She told me they were "belted cows" which I had never heard of. They are all black with an all-white belt of color around their waists.
Since I was driving, I couldn't snap a photo, but found this one on the Web (Click it.) They're called Belted Galloways and I think they're pretty neat.
Since Joy's birthday is this coming week, I wanted to do something special for her and so I made some Belted Cow Earrings! (Click the photo for a larger picture.) Aren't they cool? I know she'll get a lot of conversation out of them!
