Holy Cow?

A holy cow in Connecticut, perhaps? Or maybe a divine bovine?

A calf with a white marking on its forehead in the approximate shape of a cross was born last week at a dairy farm in Sterling, a small rustic town on the Rhode Island border.

Owner Brad Davis tells WFSB-TV he thinks the marking may be a message from above, though he's still trying to figure out what that message might be.

The mostly brown calf is half Jersey, half Holstein. Neighborhood children have named it Moses.

The chairman of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Dairy Science tells the Norwich Bulletin newspaper it's not unusual for a Holstein cow to have a white marking on its head. But department chairman Ric Grummer says the cross shape is unique.

    I believe this to be the work of God Almighty. Who else could show something so religous and right here at Christmas to boot? My cousin Evelyn was born with a not on her head that was shaped like Billy Grahams profile, like those silowette pictures people used to get done. We all believed that it was devine innervention and people would come regular to see her and touch her head. The local paper even put her story in there. Evelyn ended runnig off with a traveling preacher and we didnt see her no more. I hope the cow has better luck. God Bless everybody adn merry Christmas.

    Actually, the crosses in Jesus' day were more like a upper case T instead of a lower case t.

    I think it is the coolest thing and it Glorifies God. It could be that God is just showing Himself to the farmer or the residents of the area. One of my dogs was born with a similar marking on top of his head and I got pics to prove it! It is just a wonderful blessing from God!

    There is a message in every single animal. It's really simple too. Its that God created them, and markings or not he did a wonderful job.
