Bossy, hey Bossy

My grandfather born 1892, a South Dakota farmer on the homestead, would call the cows home at night from pasture for feed 'hey bossy bossy, hey bossy bossy'. And they'd come trotting back to the barn.

Thanks for bringing back the memory Shorpy.

I'd call her....

Jersey.

Beautiful Cow!

When I was growing up, I spent summers on our family farm and my uncle (five years older than I) had a cow who looked just like that; her name was Gail and she won many awards in 4H and FFA. Such a benign animal, unlike the geese and guinea fowl also on the farm.

Here she is in the front yard of the Page farm in Callahan, Florida; the year is probably 1958. She's on the far left of the photo.
