President's Day ~

William Henry Harrison kept one goat and one cow named Sukey. Harrison got pneumonia on Inauguration Day and died after only one month in office.

Abe Lincoln's mother died when the family dairy cow ate poisonous mushrooms and Ms. Lincoln drank the milk. Lincoln was probably the most tragic president but did you know that he once offered to use cow dung in a duel?

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first U.S. President to have a presidential aircraft. He only flew on the airplane, a specially equipped Douglas DC-4 nicknamed "The Sacred Cow."

President William Taft kept a cow on the White House lawn to supply him with fresh milk. He was the last president to do so. The cow, Pauline Wayne, was a favorite pet.
