These cows that were created by schools throughout Victoria to roam throughout the grounds of the Melbourne Show in 2012, now have their freedom in the parklands of Murchison in Victoria’s mountain country. Stacey found this while on a holiday of Victoria. She’ll be pleased to read your POST Of PRAISE for which she will add 200 REWARD POINTS for each.
Stacey wrote these words of her walk in the park, and her discovery. During the holidays we went for a trip around Victoria. On the way we stopped at Murchison a rural town in the north of Victoria. We walked around the park and this is what we found – Metal cows that were painted on. One seemed to be wearing metal armour. Another depicted a dusk scene on a farm. The third one had tomatoes and grapes on it. This one was positioned to be able to include the remaining autumn leaves on the tree. The cows added fun and creativity to the park.

The cow seems to have it’s own agenda as it looks ahead, naturally unaware of the attention of the photographer. The branch provides an interesting counter balance to the composition.
