I can fit a whole set (7 adult, 2 calves) of Noch cows into a Peco cattle wagon. They look nice but definitely need a little platform to stand on inside to make them fully visible through the slats. If doing more than one wagon though, it will get expensive!

To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Don't forget to model the correct sort of cow for your period and area.  Black and whites arrived in the UK only in the 50s.
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

Black ones have been milked (empty). White ones are ready to be milked (ie full) and black and white ones are half full of milk.
Ok......I'll get my coat.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Well I never. I didn't know that. I think I would prefer full cows so that's all white..

Good to know! Noch make a variety of colors but my set is indeed the black and whites. Thankfully I run a modern heritage layout so mine can be excused as the farmer's preference :)

Before too long a moderator may decide to take the bull by the horns, and tan the hide off of anyone who doesn't cow down.  Yep, just off to get my coat too!!!

If he's anything like me, because the joy of consuming chocolate milk is quickly replaced by the distress of producing it  :-\ whoops... Did I say that?
