The story behind my Beethoven bovine (the second in my "Musician Bovine" series) is that as I was about to finish him I asked my husband what he thought of him. He grinned....I knew that he was going to give me his honest opinion. He said that usually when cows' ears are down it meant that they were sick or running a fever! Oh well, as I have expressed before, I like to embellish and my comeback to him was that he was running up to my camera - which he was. But I thought this is the best bovine to represent Beethoven. Even with the handicap of deafness, he overcame and produced great music. My Beethoven has ears that would remind folks that a handicap can be overcome with determination and a lot of encouragement from others.
