The Cows Came Home!



Over the weekend, the Madonna Meadows became a temporary home to 101 uniquely painted fiberglass cows - which were on display as part of a traveling art exhibit called the International Cow Parade.


Stopping in various locations all around the world, Cow Parade events are a fun way to showcase the work of local artists, bring together community members, and raise money for deserving charities and organizations. The SLO event this past weekend drew nearly 10,000 visitors, lots of cameras, and more cow jokes than you could shake a stick at!



Now that the event is over, the cows are being delivered to their new "homes" around the county. Some, like our "Lady Moodonna" and her matching mini-moo, will be permanent fixtures at local businesses; while others, such as our "Grazing Monarch" and "Cow on a Mission," will only be on display till they are auctioned off in early May.


The cows are such a wonderful addition to our Madonna Inn landscape, and serve as a great reminder of our values: community, agriculture, and fun. Make sure to check them out during your next visit!
