Friday Photo

Beefcake:

I made the driver stop on the side of the road when I saw this gorgeous chap out of my window.

But what is he? The Thai driver said he was 'beef.' Why does he have a hump on his back like a camel?

I tried to google 'cow with hump' to find out what he was ... but it didn't produce quite the results I hoped for.

Is it a Brahmin cow like they worship in India? lovely photo anyway, I am going to steal your idea of a photo day, hope you don't mind.

Debs said...

Ah poor thing just being 'beef'. He is beautiful.

Sorry spelt it wrong it's Brahman.

"Cow with Hump" I love that! And what about that ginormous hump-like thing in the front, eh?

JJ said...

OOOOHHHH. Sheepish, is it? It's just a special cow? Thank you for knowing and telling me. He was georgeous, really lovely. And no, I don't mind at all.

Debs, well, they might not be keeping him just as beef. He was equipped with two GIGANTIC appendages at the back. He probably has a lovely life covering the cows!

Sue, he had ginormous 'lumps' everywhere! But he was very friendly and let me get quite close.

he;s very fine isnt he? Do let us know what he is!

Angie said...

The title alone had me chuckling, when I reached the 'results' I nearly snorted. Thanks for the laugh. :)

Fiona said...

He is super cool and he knows it. I hope he has a long life...

JJ said...

Flowerpot, isn't he? Sheepish is correct, he's a Brahmam bull. They characterized by the hump on their back and the 'dewlap' the dangly skin under their neck. They cope better with heat that European breeds of cow, which explains why they do well here.

Angie, glad it made you chuckle hon.

Fiona, he's a beauty isn't he? I'm very glad to know what he is. They are known for their intelligence and docility. Lovely boy.
