    Ruminants - which is your favourite

    My favourite has to be the highland cow.




    You can't go wrong with a good old fashioned highland cow.

    I was impressed by the albino buffalo I saw in Laos though.

    I've always liked Fresians myself.

    I think they have a lot of style and black and white is such a classic look, they will never look dated.

    I thought Fresians were flowers

    anyway, Singha is my favourite ruminant. I can just sit there after a couple of bottles and ruminate for ages

    noun: any of various cud-chewing hoofed mammals having a stomach divided into four (occasionally three) compartments.

    I had to look it up.....I'll just to go and look up cud now....I mean what's a cud, I've never seen one in Tescos. Anyway, cow - any cow, don't care what make or colour.

    This is a most excellent subject, and I will be hard pressed to pick my favourite. In fact, most ruminants carry themselves with a sublime and inimitable sense of cool.

    Here are just some of my favourites:

    1. The Gnu.

    (Just ponder the name for a while, and then have a look at the picture. Trivia: Did you know that the Gnu and the Wildebeest refer to the same type of animal? I did not until today.)


    Oh yeah? You ain't so pretty yourself, bwana.

    2. The Yak

    Misnamed and misunderstood? Would not the word 'yak' be better suited for a small, annoying rhodent or a particularly nasty breed of soi dog that will not shut up? Instead, we have a majestic mountain buffalo which has been of invaluable service to the peoples of the Himalayas.


    Don't bogart that spliff, grandma. Or I'll kick your ass.

    3. The Elk (or Moose, as some of you might prefer to call it.)

    An animal whose Latin name (Alces Alces) sounds like the type of repetative expat pisshead you might expect to meet in a tourist bar bragging about his supreme understanding of Thai ways to a group of clueless first-timers. But he is the King of the Woods, reigning supreme in the taigas of the wind-swept ultima thule of the Arctic and Subarctic zone. Well, at least until he pisses off (or on) a wolverine.


    Stalker Supreme.

    4. The Llama

    I'm gonna ride my llama / From Peru to Texarkana
    I'm gonna ride him good / In my old neighbourhood

    Immortalized in this Neil Young classic, the trickster of the Andes remains unperturbed at our gloating, a trait he very much shares with other ruminants. They simple don't give a fuck about what we think of them, and this is of course the secret to their cool. When I was a wee little Skulldigger toddler, my Papa took me to the zoo so I could see the llamas. As he took me up on his shoulders so I could get a better view, they scored a bull's eye by spitting a hard wad of carefully ruminated hay straight into his face.


    Scoundrel.

    5. The Musk Ox.

    My favorite bovine quadruped is the pig...I always get a Thai to kill one when I have to cause they sound so human when they're killed.

    I guess it actually is prehistoric if prehistoric='before written records'.

    Wikipedia says it has been around since the last ice age.

    It looks like the large chested, stand up straight, old ladies of my childhood all dressed up for church with their fox fur capes and funny hats.

    Do you aspire to be like that in later life Lily?
