This is where your milk comes from…

…and no, brown cows do not produce chocolate milk, despite what your dad used to tell you.  If brown cows produced chocolate milk, then black and white cows (Holsteins, for the uninitiated) would produce what?  Grey milk?  And depending on the ratio of black to white on the given cow, you’d have everything from charcoal milk to smoke grey, so that color theory makes no sense whatsoever.

This photo is from my drive home.  Today, the cows seemed to want their photo taken.  Every time I raised my camera, one of the cows outside the shot would give a little snort and raise her head, as though saying, “Hey!  What about me?”  As soon as I changed angles, she’d put her head down and another somewhere else would give me the diva treatment.

    • I don’t drink any coffee variations, so I wouldn’t know, but a grey latte sounds weird to me.
