Hi folks!
What happened to my cows? All I have now is 8 pairs of boots!
What did you do to my cows? Did you... make those boots... from my cows?!?!?!
How could you!? I prefered when they were alive .
I can still hear their sweet gentle mooing in my mind...

I know it's April Fools' but how could you joke about cows' death? And I'm joking, too. I don't mind it at all ;)

Does anybody want to buy a second hand cow barn? One careful owner.

Will part exchange for a shoe cupboard.

Think of it this way: The cows got old, but the boots are new.

Surely the boots are made of
neat's leather
…as Shakespeare would have said.

At least the cows have gone to make something useful.

Neat!
I learned new word in English. Thanks!
This is almost the same feeling when I learned what game could mean.

And you killers are inconsistent. There are still cow icons on posts.
Wait! They are only cow heads. That makes sense...
How cruel!
Killing people's cows and leaving them with cows' heads...

I find the cows in their new form to be much more manageable. They don't move on their own, and cannot accidentally eat a poisonous plant and die. And I can finally go on a holiday, now that I don't have to look after the cows. I can't see any downsides.

I, however, do wonder why I got only one pair of boots for every cow. Isn't it a little bit wasteful? What happened to the rest of the leather? Isn't someone pocketing the surplus?

I don't know about the leather, but I think I saw Bear firing up the barbecue...

Which just goes to prove that if you wait until the cows come home, the cows will come home
