Christopher Keeble was meandering home along the Heights Bike Trail taking photos yesterday afternoon. Near the corner of Goliad St. and Spring St., in the First Ward, he came across a new mural by Wiley Robertson and dismounted to shoot some pics.
"And this nice van pulls up," Keeble says. "A nicely dressed, older Hispanic dude hops out and sets up a tripod. I tune him out while I try to take pictures."
"[And then] this f***ing heifer sashays by. Blew me away."
"I said how much I liked it, and the cow ordered the Hispanic dude to use my phone to take the portrait," Keeble continues.
The surreal tableau remains a mystery to Keeble. "When I asked the cow what was up, I interrupted his reply, saying something along the lines of, 'I don't want to know, I think it's awesome, thank you.' But I don't think this is the first time he's done this and I'd like to track down other dancing heifer things he's done."
So Houstonia readers, just who is that floridly-attired, gigantic dancing cow?
