A friend who knows about my dog-barding project shared this with me and it cracked me up. Seriously, barding on a cow?! Wow. Sadly I do not read German at all so I have no idea why on earth this manuscript is showing such a thing, but it's pretty entertaining. If anyone out there can translate the inscription I would really appreciate it!
At least I now know putting barding on my chihuahua is not that ridiculous an idea after all!
