Brain Teaser ~ Answer

The answer to the brain teaser I posted on Saturday is.........A Cow. I couldn't tell at first, but now every time I look at it, I can see it plain as day. Laurie Ann guessed it. How in the world. I'll have to see if she has come across this before.

Well, here are some more. Isn't it great to use your brain....
