Note / MvW: ‘Someone once said to me, “Look, a cow with a ‘laken’ (sheet); that’s a Lakenvelder.” I’d never seen these animals in that light before, and they do indeed look as though they’re wearing a sheet. This was in the time of mad cow disease and I thought: this cow is black and white, and black and white can be reversed.
