Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Cows always face downwind so make great masthead indicators. The dingy has to be named 'Hind tit'. tender to Moovin on. I grew up cranking the separator for skim and cream (raw) so ruminate on that.

OK, but how do you get the cow up there?

1. Your mast man appears to have greying hair on my screen, so I question him being only 23.

2. Your cow has horns and would appear to be male. Ain't no way I'm cruising on that ship.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Back in the day when cows were immigrating to western Canada they used to get off the ship at certain ports. Hence the name ' Cattle Point' True. They were not wealthy and so traveled in steerage . Also true. Bene 505 As for getting them up the mast, just put the salt lick up there , they'll find it.

I've been getting a lot of PMs from interested ladies. Few have actual farm experince. For some reason most of them shovel ice! (Who knew?) We have a good freezer on board, so I'm considering the ice shovellers right along with the farmers daughters.

Maybe we should open this up for a vote or something.


(Need to edit this post to add the pictures. May need an hour.)

Of course you are hearing from the ladies. They all know what it means when a man has a big cow.......

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Was thinking of buying movie rights to Bene's cruise or at least rights to this thread...was starting to plan it all out, maybe premiering during Cowes week in the UK, featuring some ships cowls along side some ships cows maybe casting Capt. Jack Sparrow as Capt. Brad. Possible titles came to mind...It's a Mad Mad Mad Cow's World or maybe just Ship of Fools. Figured it would surely be a PG-13 but then I got to thinking...all this talk starting to sound a little like...well not so PG-13.
Missed it at first, should have picked it up, started right in the first post talk about "tongue in cheek" never thought, whose cheek?
Then the salt lick talk, heck the whole boat will be a salt lick!
And remembered, named cows are happier and produce more milk
when they have close relationships! But the last draw was when
said cow may actually be a...err... male cow?
Think I'm scraping the movie rights idea, but will negotiate
for the ice cream concession or at least the
cow chip rights, as sailors are always looking for better fuels
for heating and cooking!
