Friday Photo Flash Back -Contented Cow

Happy cows don't come from California. They come from Idaho.This is renown trumpet player Tony Terran playing his trumpet to a cow in Idaho. This was in 1973. This cow belonged to my husband's family. Tony Terran is a personal friend of the family.
Tony was in the Desi Arnaz Orchestra at one time. He is a really awesome trumpet player.
I found something. Tom helped me. He solos at about 2:30.

HAha, great shot! But I'm not convinced the cow looks happy???!!! Maybe they look different where I live down under in Australia!!
