I was sorting some postcards and I've found these Salers Cows. They were sent by "octabis" from the Postcrossing Meeting in Paris (18/06/2011)

"The Salers is a breed of cattle which originated in Cantal in the Massif Central of France.

They are a large breed of cattle, with the female weighing in at between 700 and 750 kg (1,543 to 1,653 lb) and standing 1.40 metres (4.6 feet) tall. They have a thick mahogany red or black coat, and long, lyre-shaped, light-coloured horns. A small percentage are naturally born without horns (polled)." In: Wikipedia
