Hmmm...interesting. They must have been stellar cows!
They must have been very important cows.
Or maybe someone just loved them and appreciated them for being what they were, productive animals. Some people do love their working animals that way. Back when I was in NYC I knew a horse cab guy who was a cut above the rest in terms of how he treated his "girls" the two horses he used in his daily work.
They ate better than some humans, had a cushy stable all to themselves, and he even alternated days working and/or swapped them out mid day in the heat of summer so they wouldn't have to work a full shift like he did. When one of them got too old and had to be retired he made sure she was given a nice home in the country and good care for the rest of her days. He was a good horseman and those horses were lucky to know him considering how most of them are treated.
