They're some of our best pals.
Cow and Horse used to sit on the shelf in L. Pirate's Cowboy-themed bedroom. One afternoon I went to get him from his nap, and he was empathetically pointing to them on his shelf. He was cooing and babbling words that I'm pretty sure translated to: "Look! Cow and Horse are lonely on that shelf! They need me to play with them!" So we took Cow and Horse off the shelf, and now everyone is happy.
