Commissioned to decorate a life-size fibreglass cow for CowParade London 2002. ‘Dawn Cowrus’ (Annie covered the cow with pictures of birds) stood in the grounds of the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood throughout the summer and autumn of that year; voted CowParade Champion’ in a Farmer's Weekly poll, it was later auctioned at the Royal Smithfield Show to raise money for charity. A model is available.
