Talk:Cows

Isn't this article a bit superfluous and too much general Wikipedia-like? --Earendilyon 08:51, 18 February 2007 (EST)

I had a feeling this would come to your attention :) While I agree it may seem more general knowledge than Tolkien, I still feel it's important to document as Tolkien specifically states Arda contains cows. As long as they were mentioned I think it's worth noting, however something like zebras if never brought up by Tolkien should not be added. If someone is writing an essay/book on animals in Middle-earth I want them to be able to know which animals Tolkien has mentioned, regardless of their lack of uniqueness. Though this is just my opinion and if more people feel otherwise we can of course remove articles such as this. --Hyarion 12:19, 18 February 2007 (EST)
