Reminds me of the rotary brush attachment we purchased to fit on our hair clippers for the goats. It solved the problem of there being afraid of the clippers once they got used to being brushed with the same motor sound. sure worked great for keeping them looking great at the fairs.
Great idea Are these rescue cows or for dairy/slaughter?
Here is our happiest cow, Nano. Most of our cows are a little grumpy and scared. They are all strays and are frequently beaten while on the road/in fields. Nano here was lucky enough to be born with us so he is quite friendly

It may be time for me to start that second cow painting. The first has been a big hit. It has been shown at our localart guild show, is now at the local state fair, and husband is getting impatient for it to return to our dining room wall.
Cows can be so lovable. Our dairy cows weaned their calves when the mom decided and that tended to be around ten months. On a daily basis, the calves stayed with their mothers for 16 hours, then we put the calf on the other side of a wire fence for 8 hours. Standing next to the mother, there was no trauma of separation. We milked once a day after that 8 hours. The calves grew strong and well-behaved and all of us were happier.
Our family milk cow, Judy, was a sweet, beautiful jersey, who would meander through the yard, with 4 to 6 little kids on her back, for a ride, while she grazed, then, happy as a lark, let all those little kids get under her, with the milk pail, and learn how to milk her. The chaos never fazed her. She very gently, lovingly, snuggled into me and crushed my toe, once, as I desperately tried to push her off, crying, because she was being so sweet, but it hurt so bad, and I just couldn't bring myself to yell at her.... My toe is still slightly misshapen...
