More random newspaper articles

I was wading through the Australian newspapers archive beta (http://ndpbeta.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/home), and to cut a long story ended up discovering the equivalent here in NZ (http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast) where I have today learnt about the Waddesdon alms cow. Yes, an alms cow - if you want a free drink of milk, no problem in Waddesdon!

Two obvious questions spring to mind:
* great story, but why couldn't Wing also have had an alms cow?
* does it strike anyone else as slightly bizarre that I have discovered the existence of said cow from a 1906 edition of Wellington's Evening Post?
