You would have to be careful with her, she looks like the kind of girl who might eat your livestock if the mood struck her, not saying she is a fat girl, but she sure is healthy

I would not throw her overboard though.

Heck, she looks healthy enough to give milk daily. That's the kind of livestock I want on my barge.

I'm afraid this thread may continue 'til the cows come home'!

Be sure to mute the cow bell at the evening milking. Cows are not known for a sense of timing and they can't count eight bells very well. Don't worry ,she 'll let you know when it's time for the morning milking.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

In the days of yore; long before there were freezers and A/C. Carrying livestock was the only means of having fresh meat. But those ships had pens built for easy handling the bullocks, pigs and chickens. Plus they had to have stowage for the feed also. Run out of feed and guest whose pet cow ends up in the stew pot.

If your bovine crew has free range privileges on deck you will have to supply the four necessary thump mats. They are secured with ,,,wait for it... cloven hitches.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

As a pesco-vegan just wanted to say how sad I am for the cows having their young ones taken away, all so some humans could have milk long after they themselves have been weaned.

A much easier alternative is simply to use vegan milk, all you need is a blender, water, and some kind of nut, like almond, coconut or your choice. Coconut cream (coco milk concentrated), unlike powdered milk tastes great and is good for you.

There you go Bene - forget the livestock - on your barge have a fresh water lake, an almond plantation and some cocunut trees. No more anchoring issues...

Boston Common is actually a common pasture, so while you are in Boston you should be able to walk Bessie over to the Common for some fresh grass.
