My wife, Karen, and I traveled just about as far away from home to the other side of the contiguous United States on vacation to the state of Maine.

We had plenty of good seafood and lobster. Cooked in little roadside “lobster pounds”. Fantastic tasting food, cooked fresh. Lobster Rolls, Lobster stew, Clam Chowder, Lobster Burritos and Lobster Quesadillas, Lobster Bisque and obviously fresh lobster – baked, boiled, and steamed.

We saw black and white ‘Oreo’ cows which are Belted Galloways, a rare breed of Scottish beef cattle. Kind of looks like an Oreo cookie – right?

This is one of the roadside shacks in one of the many port towns we toured. The colorful buoys hanging above the counter are for marking lobster traps.

And of course – we saw many white church steeples poking through the tree tops. This one is in Lexington, MA on the “commons” where the first shots were fired in the Revolutionary War.

And a lot of lighthouses – This one is Portland Head in Portland Maine

  1. Hi! My husband and I were driving home (Kansas) from Minnesota yesterday and I saw these odd looking cows. I said “look at those cows – they look like oreo cookies!” Just now I googled black and white cows and saw your site. Guess I’m not the only one that thought “oreo cookie”!

  2. Saw them last weekend in Wisconson and I thought ,wow those are big hairy pigs

  3. Hi, glad to find out what breed of cow they are. I live near Charlotte, NC and I have seen them recently on a farm I pass daily… never saw this kind of cow before. They certainly are beautiful and very big…

  4. So what is the breed

  5. Hey! I saw the “Oreo cookie” cows too! In Oklahoma on Hwy 81 outside of Union City which almost put them in the path of the tornado on May 31st. They are quite interesting. Thanks for telling me pf their origin and name.
