Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cattle_breeds

Though Frysian cows in the 1930 were not rare in the Eastern European areas, the more common types were types like Ceskestrakate, magyartarka, czerwona Polska. In general: very local breeds So, for those who do go for the ultimate correctness, there are some more possibilities than just plain black and white if you want to create a eastern or central European atmosphere. For NW Europe, it's easy going with simple black and white.
For those at MasterBox: keep on going with these kind of ideas. JUST GREAT!!
I will certainly do one in a Ukranian setting.
Waiting for the next one!!

Hi all,
Having spent a bit of time around cows and done some milking; I can tell you from personal experience that one thing you learn right away is not to stand or kneel behind old Bossy! It's a good way to catch hoof in mouth disease, her hoof in your mouth,or get something even worse in there should she decide to answer nature's call while being milked! It looks like the soldier kneeling behind the cow must be a city boy! Still it looks like a useful set and it might make a fun diorama to show old Fritz taking one in the face.
Regards, Bob

LOL! I'm sure that poor soldier was just placed there in the box art for aesthetic reasons I would just position him on the other side of the cow from the guy doing the milking. That aside, this is an awesome figure set! Keep it coming MB!

Funny you should mention that Bob. I am originally a ranch kid from Montana and that was the first thing I thought of when I looked at the picture. I thought he could get kicked, wet or.......end up with something nice and warm on his head!!!!
