I doubt I would have ever gotten this answer on my own, but I thought it was a pretty good puzzle. Think about the cow more in three dimensions than two. Now imagine she is aligned so that her tail is further away from you than her head. So, then in the first picture, she has her head turned and is looking towards your left. In the second picture, she simply turns her head the other way and is now looking towards your right. In two dimensions you think of the cow as facing left and try to solve the puzzle by making her face right, but that is the twist in the puzzle.

I think this would also work..! jus move 1 stick and reverse the image (rotate it to 180 degree.)

now the cow is looking opposite direction to the direction it was looking before

This is how I did it as well. You move one stick and then rotate the picture 180. It fits with the usual rules of these logic puzzles and you get the same picture just looking right instead of left.

although considering that cow cant do that completely in real life, this is a pretty good answer

I instantly thought that the answer was to move the two head matches, but then thought, No, that CAN'T be right it's too easy! Ha Ha jokes on me!

The American Heritage dictionary allows for male bovines to correctly be called cows.

(my first post)

A horn is a hollow, pointed projection of the skin of various animals, consisting mainly of keratin as well as other proteins. True horns are found only among the ruminant artiodactyls, in the families Antilocapridae (pronghorn) and Bovidae (cows, buffalo, yaks, goats, antelope etc.). Those animals have one or two pairs of horns, which usually have a spiral shape.

Cows have horns.

Most female dairy cows have their horns removed for their own safety and ease of management during milking. Very few naturally are hornless (known as polled cattle), which comes from a recessive gene, therefore fairly rare.

At first I though it was a trick question because I thought only bulls have horns and cows do not. But I learned that cows can have horns. And I didnt even bother trying to figure out the puzzle because I thought it was a trick!
