Cows and Sheep are planespotters? Who'd have thought... I know about them sheep, though... They're still plotting to get away by learning to fly. They realised that they can't fly themselves, so they are trying to build and fly an airplane! They're cunning critters, those sheep...

They look so silent and rather stupid. But in a way they its a highly intelligent creature. They are just waiting for the moment they are able to walk on two feet. And then the sheep rule the world and use the plane instead. Human being will be slaves of the allmighty sheep...

Cows are very shy and sensitive creatures. They just need to look mean so the other animals don't pick on them and humans don't go around tipping them over when they are asleep. You'd look mean too if someone kept knocking you over while laughing maniacally.

Sheep are just big mops on four legs.

Now a goat - there's a cool farm animal. I love goats. They think they are oversized vegetarian dogs.

Yup, agree with you on goats, they have personality. Cows on the other hand... Come on, who needs more than one stomach? (Apart from Michael Moore?) A cow is nothing more than stomach covered in bad smelling fur... At least for us we have the 'I don't remember eating that' at the end of the digestive cycle, not in the middle...

Goats are sitting in trees in Marocco. Funny animals

Cows taste better than goats. Maybe it's best we eat the cows and leave the goats to converse with. Personally, I vote for donkeys. They've got the look of a horse, the strength of a bull, and the speed of a turtle. Good for catching.

Have you ever tried to catch a donkey??? It's harder than it looks! They are also a very ornery lot.

Cows - they are sacred in India - why? I know its something to do with Hinduism but what exactly?

I like cows - they are getting bad press here - l dont think they look scary just bored, like they have seen it all before and humans are just annoying pests who steal thier milk and kill them for beef.

Also - never trust an Indian Restaruant with Beef on the menu (my tip of the day!)

Sheep - the funniest animals on the planet - so daft and silly! Have you ever been caught in the midst of a load of sheep (l dont know the correct terminology - is it herd/gaggle/murder (thats crows!)) escaped onto a road (it happens quite a bit in Ireland!) - its just the funniest thing!

Goats - dont trust them they will eat your laundry if your back is turned!

The god Krishna was cow shepherd when he was young. Worshipping the cow is the same as follow Krishna's example. That is why they are walking and sitting in the most congested cities. They are probably aware of the fact that they are holy, they look very arrogant. The locals take give the cows food from leftovers. But many cows are really thin, especially in Delhi.
