You lookin' at me?

I haven't posted a cow picture in a while! Shooting this one sparked a useful conversation in the car: 7-yearo old daughter: "Mom, is that the male or the female?" Me: "I'm not sure, but I think probably the male since it has those big horns." 4.y.o., very slowly and carefully: "Mom, I have to ask you something, and I don't know if you can explain it to me or not. What does male or female mean? "

Now that's the joy of having, if not being, a 4 yr-old, I have to guess. It's what Bryan Adams SHOULD have sung, not 18!
As for that wonderful, hairy cow, complete with terrifying horns, wonder how he/she/it would go down here on the streets of Vila Franca at bull-running time? I'd be curious to see the interaction, whatever the gender....
