Geocache Description:

Herd of Cows?

Morrinsville is home to a collection of life-size cow sculptures throughout the town showcasing the history and heritage of Morrinsville. The "Herd of Cows?" project was born from a desire to put Morrinsville on the map. At the time of publishing, there are life-size 51 cows waiting to be found, as well as Mabel the mega cow at GZ. See more information and map at

2. Go for a walk or drive and find some of the herd, and find your favourite cow. Include a photo of your favourite life-size painted cow (NOT Mabel) in your log. You don't need to email or message me your photo.
