Not quite Varicose Veins

Many dairy farms decorate their entrance with a plastic, life-size cow. I have even seen cows painted as strawberries, colourful and psychedelic cows.

They are pretty life-like, particularly the veins show around the udder.

Whoever painted these two specimen has gone a little overboard painting the veins in blue, black and dark russet. It bothers me everytime I pass by.

The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Venation

PS: While checking whether I had the right word for the blood vessels in and around the udder, I came across the startling information that there are beauty pageants for cows. There actually are cow beauty queens called Miss Zürich, for example. Now that’s a piece of trivia I will not forget in a hurry!
