I’m India D. Cow and here to make you happy!  You are HEROES!  You work hard every day and you deserve to smile every day!  Those of you working to save us animals hear so very many very sad things.  And there’s lots of very glad things too and that’s what we talk about here!  All pawsitive all the time!  I want my friends to be happy and smile and know there’s a lot of good - including YOU - in this world!!  Be kind and pass it on!  Please send me your Good New and Fun Stuff to share, personal or global. Let’s keep it fun and interactive!!  After all, if we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane!

Hi there, India here.  That obnoxious Vincent
and his trusting little cohort Duke have been locked out of the office. 

WE are sick to death of hearing about cats and dogs.  Yahhh yahhh cats do this, dogs do that.  Everybody wants to help the cats and the dogs and NOBODY, but NOBODY seems to pay attention to us Farm Animals. 

YOU know Rikki’s supports TWENTY TWO species of animals.  But did YOU know that CATS and DOGS are only TWO of those species?  Yeah, just two, so MOOOO to that.   20/22nds of us are Farm Animals.  And WE should rule.  We DEMAND more say at Rikki’s Refuge.

You want to know why?  Well here’s just a few reasons.
We represent more species.
We are bigger.
Well most of us.
We are beautifuler.

We aren’t picky about our food.

We don’t have an attitude.

We stick together.

We don’t humiliate one another.

We respect you hoomans.

We listen and look out for one another.

We wait patiently for our 9th Life Center  rights.

We’d never mock you.

We’re lining up for our due rights!

If you don’t see this my way
If you are a spy for Vincent
If you love cats and dogs more


This is ONLY for

Farmspirational Visions
Yesterday is like a dung heap,
you can complain about the smell,
or you can use it to fertilize tomorrow's garden.
And that’s just one more thing we are far more efficient at than the cats and dogs!  We make bigger and better dung heaps!  I don’t see any of you seeking out cat or dog poo to put in your gardens, now do I?  Want some good fertilizing dung?  Just ask, we farm animals are ready right now to supply you with all you need for your garden!  Today and always!

Let’s stop complaining about the cats and dogs of Rikki’s Refuge - let’s overthrow!!!!   Cows to rule the planet!!!!   Shut up Petunia, I’m still bigger than YOU!

Tails of Trivia
Sheep can recognize other sheep from pictures!

There are more chickens in the world than people.

A Holstein's spots are like fingerprints -- no two cows have the same pattern of spots.

Goat's eyes have rectangular pupils.

A 1,200-pound horse eats about seven times it's own weight each year.

The tongue of a pig has six thousand more taste buds than a human's.

There are more cows in the United States than Hoomans. New Zealand has more sheep than hoomans.

Boanthropy is a rare mental disorder that causes a person to think he is an ox. One of the first recorded cases is in the book of Daniel (4:33), which tells about Nebuchadnezzar, a Babylonian king who would eat grass.

Scientists believe that the closest living relative to the Tyrannosaurs Rex is the chicken.

Equinophobia is the fear of horses; alektorophobia is the fear of chickens; and taurophobia is the fear of bulls. There is no official term for the fear of cows or pigs.

On this Day
April 29th is National Arbor Day, a day we farm animals really love.  Resting under the shade of a tree is one of our favorite activities.  I sure wish the goats could refrain from eating the trees you hoomans try to plant for us!

I’d like to remind you that April is Appreciate Diversity Month, NOT appreciate Cats and Dogs month.  And that April is also Soy Foods Month, something we farm animals think is a really good idea.  The cats and dogs don’t give a hoot, be we farm animals want you hoomans to be healthy and eat soy, not us!

And last but not least I think it only right that I inform you that April 30 is Love Your Lawn Day.  Yes folks, it is.  And that’s official.  It’s NOT love your cat day.  It’s NOT love you dog day.  And it’s certainly NOT Vincent’s Birthday. 

Do not trust a word you hear from that rascally varmint 
April 30th is Love Your Lawn Day
give Vincent some fertilizer for his so called birthday!!!


No matter how much Vincent cajoles or Duke begs
absolutely do not click on their photos to vote for them

Vincent is in the lead and afraid he’s going to lose out, lots of last minute votes have been coming in for Duke.  Vincent could be a real looser this year!!!  I’m hoping you’re going to let this happen!  Please DO NOT click on Vincent to help him win.
